We were selected to give a paper on the global port tug market at this biennial event which took place in Marseille.
World Port Tug Market – The Current View from Marseille
ALEC LAING, Managing Director/Shipbroker, ACL Shipbrokers Ltd, UK
The aim of the paper is to give an engaging, fresh and current view of the port tug market, specifically garnered and tailored to the ITS conference audience in Marseille. The presenter is Alec Laing, founder of ACL Shipbrokers, who works primarily in the port of tug marketing. As an independent tug brokerage, ACL will use its access to key personalities in the market to canvas opinions from tug owners, designers and shipyards in the lead to the conference. With this snapshot, the audience will be given a unique insights into the market, and a look to the future from the market influencers. Before the conference in June, Laing will talk to the selected individuals, where possible face to face, to take the pulse of the market. The aim is to provide the audience with a more global perspective than they might be able to gather in their day to day jobs. Despite the advanced technology which our businesses benefit so much from, there is no substitute for meetings in person to discuss topical issues.
