Excerpt
The continuous process of change in international transport management in the last ten years, from a segmented modal approach towards a much more integrated transport concept tailored to better meet the pressing needs of customer industries, is resulting in an increasing pressure on ports to adapt their role and function to this more demanding operational environment. This entails the rethinking of national port development strategies, as well as far-reaching reforms in the legislative, regulatory, and managerial environment within which commercial ports have to operate. In particular, the need to define new partnerships between the public and private sectors in port operations, investments financing and assets management, leads to a review of the respective roles of public and private actors, and specifically calls for a clarification of the mandate of the public sector, and simultaneously of the missions it would be well placed to undertake. These missions are likely to be more of a catalyst and facilitation nature, together with a stress on assistance to public statutory duties, with a particular attention devoted to transport safety and environmental protection. New labor practices are also calling for a changing role for port workers? unions and a new style of dialogue between labor and public and private entities on the waterfront.
