Mohammed Dardasawi, Chief Officer, Aqaba Development Corporation
Port operating system transformation is one of the most complex and difficult projects that ports execute in terms of cost, time and associated risks. Many ports are simply afraid to upgrade their legacy operating system; even renewals can no longer be put off as they drive an ROE improvement.

This presentation will analyse the main objections of progressive modernisation and present the most effective approach of operating system transformation to grow revenue and rebuild profitability in port.
