OPPORTUNITY (Issue 02)

Welcome to the second issue of OPPORTUNITY, in this edition we look at how the shipping industry is responding to this year’s cyberattacks. We speak to leading experts on how to raise awareness and improve cybersecurity.

We also cover how consolidation in the container shipping sector will impact ports and the supply chain. Also featured, we ask if ports and carriers are ready to embrace new technology in order to improve supply chain efficiency and keep pace with the growth in global trade.

Plus, how we are building a global presence in the hinterland logistics sector by providing warehousing, inland ports, trucking and rail services throughout our global network of ports.

LOOKING BEYOND THE PORT FOR NEW OPPORTUNITIES

By the time our readers receive this copy of our magazine OPPORTUNITY, we should be approaching year end and I often get questions from the media asking: “How is Hutchison Ports performing in 2017?” and “What can we expect in 2018?”

CYBERCRIME - A THREAT THE INDUSTRY CAN NO LONGER IGNORE

The recent much publicised cyberattack on the shipping industry has awoken the transportation sector in general to this salient point: ignore cybersecurity at your peril. The dislocation and economic fallout from the NotPetya attack has undoubtedly acted as a ‘wake-up call’ to how best contain this ever-increasing threat.

CONSOLIDATION DRIVING CHANGES IN CONTAINER SHIPPING INDUSTRY

During the last twelve months the container shipping industry has been through a period of consolidation unprecedented in the last twenty years. The outcome of this paradigm shift affects the whole ocean supply chain.

TECHNOLOGY ENABLER OF LONG-TERM SOLUTIONS

Ports and the shipping sector in general must embrace new technology to cope with the everrising demands of increasing global trade. Technology can be the key provider of solutions to customers’ rising expectations and expanding container traffic, and this will ultimately add to the long-term profitability of the industry.

HUTCHISON PORTS DEVELOPING GLOBAL LOGISTICS SERVICES

As the ocean freight industry becomes increasingly commoditised, shippers and Beneficial Cargo Owners are looking for innovative ways to improve efficiency and add value in the supply chain. In response to this growing demand Hutchison Ports is developing its own logistics services throughout its global network.

IMPLEMENTATION OF REMOTE-CONTROL OPERATIONS IN FULL SWING AT HUTCHISON PORTS

As the giant container vessels of 18,000- 20,000+ TEU capacity are calling at the world’s major ports, terminal operators are gearing up to accommodate these ‘Goliaths’ of the sea.

ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS AT HUTCHISON PORTS

Celebration around the network at Hong Kong, China, Egypt, Mexico, Panama and UK.

It’s cool to be ‘Green’

Go Green is part of a global environmental initiative undertaken by employees of the international ports and maritime community. Under this annual set of activities, employees of six port operating groups, including Hutchison Ports, collectively demonstrated their support for environmental protection in four locations where they share in local port operation.
