"Financial Times' To Issue Survey On World Ports

On September 26, 1986, the Financial Times will publish a fourpage survey on International Ports.

The survey will look at the rapid pace of innovation the ports have had to maintain to meet growing demands, and will consider recent major investment in fast and efficient ways of handling cargo and passengers as the ports compete for trade.

Elsewhere the survey will look at the equipment the major ports have been buying to cope with rapidly changing maritime needs.

Abroad, the survey will ask which are the leading ports in the container sector in Europe, the Far East and North America and how are they developing? Latest handling methods for bulk cargoes and the developments in gas and oil handling will be assessed.

Ports have traditionally been centers of organized labor, but changing methods and financial pressures have meant cutbacks and confrontation: the survey will consider the impact worldwide, and will profile selected key ports around the world in the major shipping and cargo sectors.

The Financial Times publishes more than 250 surveys each year which look at a wide range of topics of interest to the business community, including countries, regions and specific industries.
