A second , updated version of the WPSP-IAPH guidance document created by the WPSP COVID19 Task Force for ports and port operators has been published on the World Ports COVID19 Information Portal
The recent version builds on the the initiative taken by Port of Açu (Brazil) to coordinate, collect and summarise input from ports worldwide on which actions are being taken to respond to coronavirus crisis. This international benchmark has been complemented with further contributions from IAPH member ports. The guidance document is dynamic and will be regularly revised using new and updated contributions from ports worldwide.
The report provides a three-tiered approach on 1) immediate potential measures addressing port operations, governance and communication, 2) examples of measures to protect the business and financial returns, and 3) suggested measures to support customers and supply chain stakeholders.
