From health crises and vessel casualties to cyber-attacks, ports regularly find themselves responding to incidents over which they do not have complete control or responsibility. Despite this, port owners and operators have a critical role to play in managing such issues for themselves, port users and public stakeholders. We take a look at how port owners and operators might approach the preparation and management of these issues and their aftermath. We will also look at how emerging technologies like block chain provide new opportunities for collaboration and increased efficiency.

This presentation will consider the competition challenges facing privatised as well as state owned ports. These issues are especially timely, given growing calls (including vocally from the ACCC) for pricing regulation to be imposed on private port monopolies and the commencement by the ACCC of proceedings against a port for alleged misuse of market power.
