The conflict in APM Terminals in Port of Gothenburg has led to a large reduction in volumes handled in the port. We can observe consequences within the supply chain and large companies across the country stress the negative implications in terms of increased cost as well as problems of sending/receiving goods on time. SSPA and the University of Gothenburg (School of Business, Economics and Law), will jointly investigate the consequences of the conflict from a national perspective. This knowledge will benefit both authorities and industrial actors.
In early December, the trade show Marintec China will be held in Shanghai. SSPA has participated in the exhibition on a regular basis for several years and it is an opportunity for us to meet our clients and partners and to make connections with new maritime professionals. Come and meet us at the Swedish pavilion if you are visiting the trade show.
The maritime industry is currently experiencing a significant increase of interest in battery hybrid installations for new buildings and retrofits.
