More than ever, ports are vital nodes for an increasingly complex web of international trade and supply chains. Ports have become an increasing focus for security, environmental and competition regulation and their role and efficiency within global supply chains is being scrutinised by governments and industry alike. At the same time, ports find themselves at the forefront of the development and facilitation of alternative energy sources, often literally acting as the gatekeepers for the inflow of such technology and projects into Australia or out to the rest of the world. This series will look at how Australian ports might navigate these challenges and opportunities in 2022.
