terminals as an example - but if you don't have efficiency out the gate, you don't help the supply chain." "The logical conclusion is to fortify the water ports and the main gateways as they relate to containerization. It behooves these ports to work together to develop efficiencies, especially operational efficiencies," said Cordero. Restrictions exist, but Cordero said they are less about regulations and more about operational models: "At the end of the day, the operation of terminals [at landlord ports] is strictly in the hands of the private operators. That has to be recognized. The good news, from the perspective of the port authorities, is that today, landlords are far more active than a few years back. You are seeing them roll up their sleeves and address operational issues and efficiencies, in collaboration with the private terminal operators." The FMC is also concerned about supply chain impacts given restrictive port infrastructure funding. "Some ports have been very much challenged by lack of funding and by dredging required. In the summer of 2016, we are witnessing that challenge by the mere fact that the Panama Canal is "Seaports are selecting projects that improve supply chain efficiencies, enhance capacities, provide a positive return on investment, and produce economic benefits for the state and their regions." -Toy Keller, Florida Ports Council completed ... We'll see how that plays out but the reality is many of our ports are not ready, not through their lack of initiative, but through whether or not we have appropriate funding," said Cordero. He indicated his intent to continue to guide the FMC, under the auspices of anti-trust immunity, in facilitating port cooperation as a means to better accommodate the new shipping realities in a productive manner. Cooperation Cultivates Productivity Opportunities for inter-port cooperation exist. Just as ocean carriers charter slots or motor carriers pool chassis, ports can flout tradition and work together. Such decisions aren't made lightly - there must be tangible benefit, even if they take some time to realize. And, there are always hurdles to address related to governance, stakeholder concerns and anti-trust. Sometimes, a true collaboration of ports emerges, such as in the marketing of a cruise range or the new West Coast cargo blocks. To capture cargo and passengers today, ports must increasingly work as part of a complete supply chain. It makes sense to work together if the ports are interchangeable in a user's eyes, if the ports serve the same taxpayers and/or if the ports can improve their bottom lines while increasing benefits to end users and stakeholders. The increasing availability of portindustry technology and data metrics might help to hone competition between ports, but, conversely, it can also serve as a launching point for inter-port dialogue, collaborative initiatives, joint marketing and performance enhancements. ● 32 AAPA1 SEAPORTS 778550_Georgia.indd MAGAZINE 05/12/15 2:38 am http://www.gaports.com/gatewaytotheworld http://www.gaports.com/gatewaytotheworld
