Kochi to host Summit on Coastal Shipping on August 30

Our Bureau Kochi | Updated on August 07, 2019

The annual Coastal Shipping and Inland Water Transport Business Summit will be held here on August 30.

The 7th edition of the summit will address how short sea and container feeder shipping can secure a stronger future.


Connectivity is one of the critical enablers for ports as it is the end-to-end effectiveness of the logistics system that drives competitiveness. Ports are unable to handle additional traffic even if there is adequate capacity and modern handling facilities if evacuation of cargo is slow.

This undermines the competitiveness of Indian ports vis-à-vis others in the region, according to a press statement.

Topics covered

Topics to be covered in the summit include future of short sea and feeder container shipping, and how they form part of a competitive supply chain.

The summit will discuss economic factors that impact the maritime sector, maritime emissions and mandatory energy efficiency measures, legislative constraints or moves to regulate ports and port concessionsand status of feeder operators in India among other topics.
