One Thing Remains the Same

One Thing Remains the Same

Jennifer Tatom, Manager of Marketing & Business Development

A changing landscape of cargo carriers spurred by consolidation and realignment has fueled growth at the Georgia Ports Authority by playing perfectly to GPA’s advantages. A decade ago, ocean carriers began massive fleet upsizing to reduce fuel consumption and cost per container. This caused a major imbalance in supply and demand, particularly as the global economy fell into recession. The inability of individual ocean carriers to absorb capacity caused financial stress and led to the unprecedented carrier consolidation and alliance changes currently taking place.
