ForSHORE is a hit at the AAPA port conferences

ForSHORE and BUs from South and North America exhibited their know-how at the last two AAPA port conferences.

The AAPA, American Association of Port Authorities, is the unified voice of the seaport industry in the Americas, representing more than 130 public port authorities in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean and Latin America. AAPA promotes the common interests of the port community, and provides critical industry leadership on security, trade, transportation, infrastructure, environmental and other issues related to port development and operations. Their annual conferences are a must for anyone who wants to be a player in the marine business.

AAPA USA Austin, 27-29 September 2021

Two years after the last edition, the port industry was glad to meet again in person and full of hope thinking about the prospects of major infrastructure investment programmes in United States.

Soletanche Bachy International Major Projects and Nicholson represented the Group expertise and its ForSHORE brand in Austin.

It was the perfect occasion to make new contacts with Owners, Engineers, and Suppliers. Modernized, upgrading existing facilities and constructing new ones were part of most of the discussions. The supply chain current concerns were debated – as well as other matters – to find solutions to offload, transport and deliver all the good that come from the oceans to the final customer.

Some very interesting topics were at the heart of discussions:

  • The challenges for port competitiveness in Latin America and the Caribbean: the vision of global leaders
  • Management, innovation and sustainability in the port and shipbuilding industries: international experiences
