AAPA Seaports Magazine, Q3 2021

The Q3 2021 issue of Seaports Magazine explores how ports are not only staying one step ahead, but how they are expanding their reach beyond their borders. Read about how they are brainstorming ideas using adaptive learning and using research to prove their value. Also, see how ports are staying one step ahead of cyberattacks and using technology to redefine the term “hands-on.” Drones are also explored in this issue, and not just for security use. Read about how ports are creatively finding ways to improve their ports and the safety of those that use them by putting eyes in the sky.

Don’t miss the AAPA Annual Conference and Expo spread, as well! It is a handy resource if you are heading to the conference next week or if you are looking for links to keep you connected, even if not able to attend.

As always, this issue is available online in a format that exactly mimics the hard copy as well as one that is formatted for easy reading on your mobile device.
