Digitalization of the maritime industry has been topping the "hot topics" list for a few years now and the interest in who, what, and when will digitally disrupt seaborne trade has been only gaining traction.
The past year brought another cargo handling record for the Port of Gdynia, including a double-digit increase in container turnover, enhancing its position as one of the Baltic Sea region's prime universal seaports.
The past year brought about a number of developments across the Russian seaborne transport market, most notably in relation to shipping across the Northern Sea Route (NSR) and exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the country's fields in the Arctic.
It was yet another peaceful year across the Baltic Sea region. No SECA-like regulations, trade wars, rampant spikes in the price of bunkers, or racking disputes between trade unions and terminal operators, just good ol' transport and logistics.
