International Maritime Transport and Logistics


Maritime Transport and Logistics is the pillar of international trade and globalization. This role will continue to grow as there is an expected increase in world trade, milions of people are expected to be lifted out poverty through improved access to basic materials, goods and products. Maritime Transport is therefore an important component of socio-economic and environmental growth.

An indespensable fact about maritime logistics is that it is the most environmentally sound mode of transport in terms of energy efficiency and pollution{UN}. The socio-economic and environmental dimensions should therefore be fully recognized, equally in strategy, policy, regulatory framework and most importantly, action.

SIB, the knowledge centre, will bring together stakeholders in this sector and generate content that it hands on and experience based on  emerging Sustainability issues in this sector. The UN Sustainability concept in the Maritime industry gives a detailed overview. Access it here
