THE ROLE OF PORT AUTHORITY'S IN GLOBAL LOGISTICS

The first edition of the World Port Strategy Forum brings together the world's leading Port Authority CEO's to discuss and debate their changing role in the global supply chain. Port authorities are no longer content to sit back and play the role of the landlord. Competition between ports is fierce, and in some cases the age old reliance on physical location as a Unique Selling Point (USP) is being diminished by greater levels of intermodality in the hinterland.

Port authority "Thought Leaders"  now see their role in a much broader  way and in particular are focussed on the quality of service the shipping lines customer, the beneficial cargo owners and  non vessel operating companies receive from the port and its stakeholders as a whole.

Historically ports were measured on their ability to accommodate ships and other modes of transport effectively and efficiently. Contemporary developments in transportation, however, dictate that emphasis has shifted to the ability of ports to fulfil new roles in the logistics era within the context of operating as part of an integrated global supply chain system.

The port is part of a cluster of organizations in which different logistics and transport operators are involved in bringing value to the ports end user, whether it be the shipping line or the beneficial cargo owner.

The role of modern seaports involves integration into the supply chain, and fulfilling this role means greater ability of the port to satisfy customers and achieve its objectives. In this role, the port is considered as part of a cluster of organizations in which different logistics and transport operators are involved in bringing value to the final consumers. In order to be successful, such channels need to achieve a higher degree of coordination and cooperation. The determination of the parameters that encompass the extent of integration of ports/terminals in global supply chains has, therefore, become of great importance for ports. This demand has led to what is termed "Port Centric Logistics"

The Institute traces the origin of Port Centric Logistics back here to South China and the Port of  Shenzhen and pinpoints the local port community as the Pioneers in shaping both the business model and best practices that have come to shape port centric logistics globally.

Shenzhen is now embracing a new vision which it is driving through a sister port program which has seen it create formal relationships with 15 of the worlds leading port communities through their respective authorities. Assisted by the Institute, the intention is over time to strengthen these alliances, firstly bilaterally and in the future multilaterally.

The  World Port Strategy Forum has been established as a result of these efforts and will provide the platform through which like minded ports from across the world can "Share With, Learn From & Benchmark With Each Other" in pursuit of greater innovation in and better delivery of port related services to the container supply chain.

The format for the meeting is designed to create a flow of conversation around the central theme of THE ROLE OF PORT AUTHORITY'S IN GLOBAL LOGISTICS. Unlike the traditional conference format, the meeting will be held in forum style, where all 25 guest experts will engage with the subject throughout the entire day. The narrative is informed by a keynote address followed by a series of short presentations at strategic intervals throughout the forum.

The presentations given by recognized industry experts act as segues to the next area to be debated. On completion, the subject is discussed and debated in the forum, before delegates are invited to engage. Each subject is supported by a series of talking points which are agreed in advance through local and global research and in particular in coordination with delegates and experts. The talking points provide a roadmap, at end of which we hope to have exhausted the subject from all angles and points of view


SHENZHEN PORT AUTHORITY HOST OF WPSF 2011

Shenzhen, as Special Economics Zone, has got significant achievement in the past 30 years after the economics reform. As one of important parts, Shenzhen port logistics have also got a great development. Shenzhen not only becomes one of the container hub of China, but also becomes one of the biggest ports in the world. Though the global economics is getting complicated, port and shipping market is facing huge challenge, we are still confident in the future of Shenzhen port logistics.

Sea, road and air transportation network, logistics park and data management system have been upgraded. Shenzhen will work more closely with HK in Shipping area.

The strategic of logistics adaptation is to develop port supply chain

The competition among ports has been changed to supply chain competition. The supply chain is based on port and shipping industry, including all related service providers. The port should connect with other service providers to extend logistics function and provide There are more and more manufacturers and trading company out-sourcing their logistics service. So There are more and more supply chain companies starting extended services.

The current 7 key logistics parks have been connected with high way and direct/indirect businss relationship with ports. Walmart, Carrerfour, IKEA have set up Distribution Center. DHL, UPS, Maersk Logistics, APL Logistics, COSCO Logistics and other world famous companies have been working with logistics park and providing global services. The logistics parks has been the key base for port supply chain.

Future Development

LOGISTICS DEVELOPMENT IN SHENZHEN PORT

Global Institute of Logistics research traces the origin of Port Centric Logistics back here to South China and Shenzhen and pinpoints the local port community as the Pioneers in shaping both the business model and best practices that have come to shape port centric logistics globally. It was in Shenzhen port that the age old mantra that the “cargo followed the ship” was challenged and proved that in certain cases the ship would follow the cargo and in these cases logistics is the key driver. A new business model was born.

INVESTING IN HINTERLAND CONNECTIVITY : PORT OF ZEEBRUGGE CASE STUDY

The port of Zeebrugge has an ideal location to serve the markets of continental Europe as well as the British Isles. It is a young seaport with modern port equipment suitable for the largest ships. The present structure of the port dates from as recent as 1985. The emergence of the roll-on/roll-off techniques, the containerisation and the increase in the scale of the ships convinced the Belgian government in the seventies to develop the coastal port into a deep sea port. An extensive outer port, a new sea lock with entrance to an inner port gave Zeebrugge new impulses in the years that followed. As a result, total cargo traffic tripled from 14 million tonnes in 1985 to 43.5 million tonnes in 2014.
This cargo needs to be transported free of congestion to the customers in the European Hinterland. In order to safeguard this fluent cargo traffic, the inland connections need to be optimized constantly. The port authority together with the responsible bodies continually see to it that maritime access and connections by road, rail and inland navigation are able to ensure the mobility of the present and the future cargo volumes.

BUILDING RAIL COMPETENCE IN THE MODERN PORT : THE CASE FOR VIRGINIA

East coast ports from Wilmington, North Carolina north to New York City, notably including facilities at Norfolk, Portsmouth and Newport News on the harbor of Hampton Roads, currently receive extensive intermodal shipping container traffic. Much of the volume is from China and other points in Asia and is bound for the eastern 1/3 of the United States. Most containers are then transferred to railroads, and then transported generally as close as possible to final destinations, where they are then moved onto trucks for the final portion of their journeys.

E-TECHNOLOGY TO ENABLE VISIBILITY OF CONTAINERS IN THE PORT COMMUNITY

Bao Qifan State-rank Expert, Engineer, Economist SIPG has invented an Etag system which is ratified under ISO18186 to track the movement of containers seamlessly using RFID technology. It will help better fight terrorism, stowaways and food contamination in containers. Initially, 10,000 containers will be sealed with a special e-tag, which can be re-used on the shipping line between Shanghai and Savannah. The e-tag that uses radio frequency identification technology will show a container's status in the logistics chain, and send warnings if it is opened without authorization. China is the first to mobilize resources such as ports, shipping companies, cargo owners and the Customs and put the technology into use on a commercial shipping line.

Bao Qifan has invented some 140 technologies, winning several awards in international invention exhibitions. Today, Bao's inventions are used in more than 1,000 Chinese enterprises and more than 20 countries and regions in the world, yielding a total return of some 400 million yuan (US$61 million). In 1996, Bao became the manager of Longwu Port in Shanghai. The port's business was slow because of its location six hours away from the East China Sea. To attract more business, Bao began to study the feasibility of domestic container transportation. In December 1996, Longwu Port opened China's first domestic container route. By 2005, the port's cargo traffic increased from 2.5 million tons to 21.77 million tons.
In 2003, Bao started to study automated port operation. He conducted investigations and studied advanced technologies in world-class ports such as Rotterdam, Netherlands, and Hamburg, Germany. Bao's innovations in port automation have now been applied to Shanghai's Waigaoqiao Port. If you have a chance to visit the port, you will find no human cargo handlers there. All handling is done by machines and operation orders are issued from a control center two kilometers away.
For his efforts in automation Bao won a golden award at the Paris International Concours Lépine. After that, he won three more golden awards at the fair, setting a record in its 105-year history.
