Bulk Terminals International – keeping you connected and in touch with bulk terminal operations
Welcome to the summer edition of Bulk Terminals International.
In addition to our regular features and contributors, Editor Sandra Speares reports on the challenges classification societies are facing as the maritime industry prepares itself for increasing levels of regulations relating to the environment – see page 48.
In response to the awareness of terminals to the need for greater environmental protection Sandra reports that investment in crane and grab systems has continued this year, with an emphasis on putting in place equipment that will be eco-friendly as well as efficient – see page 17.
Technology has a key role to play in boosting productivity as well as environmental protection in ports and ensuring that every part of the supply chain works effectively – see page 23.
I look forward to seeing you all at BULK TERMINALS 2022 RIGA in October – more details in my piece on page 6.
One update since going to press: I reported that Lithuania had banned the transit of coal, metals, construction materials and advanced technology by rail through its territory from Russia to the Kaliningrad enclave. This has now been reversed on instructions from the EU which said the sanctions only applied to transit by road.
Enjoy our summer edition of Bulk Terminals International.
