Kemmsies, Ph.D., Chief Economist, Moffatt & Nichol provide his unique perspective on how key economic metrics will impact the port industry and effect vessel sizes, carrier alliances and supply chain shifts. Some of his insight is included in Meredith Martino's article on page 30 entitled, "Do Ports Know What's Coming?" * Did you know that AAPA is in the middle of creating a new website? It is launching in the spring and will feature more streamlined and efficient navigation choices to make it easier for members, potential members and key industry influencers to find what they are looking for on AAPA's site. It also will give users a better experience registering to attend AAPA programs and updating their contact information with AAPA. * AAPA's 2016 Spring Conference is coming soon, April 4-6 at the Renaissance Washington, D.C. Downtown Hotel. This annual meeting is AAPA's premier Washington event and one that always brings the port industry's top leadership to the nation's capital.
