TRANSHIPMENT: THE HIDDEN AGENDA?.

SUBTITLE: CARGO SYSTEMS REGULARLY COVERS DEVELOPMENTS IN THE CONTAINER TRANSHIPMENT BUSINESS, BUT INVARIABLY FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF TERMINAL OPERATORS. AN INDUSTRY GRANDEE, WITH EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE BOTH IN TERMINAL OPERATIONS AND IN THE SHIPPING INDUSTRY, AGREED TO GIVE CS THE INSIDE TRACK ON HOW HE SEES THE WAY TRANSIPMENT ACTUALLY WORKS. EVEN THOUGH HIS OBSERVATIONS GO SOME WAY TOWARDS EXPLAINING WHY INDUSTRY BIG HITTERS ARE RELUCTANT TO SPEAK OPENLY ABOUT TRANSHIPMENT, THE PARANOIA SURROUNDING WHAT IS, AFTER ALL, A RELATIVELY STRAIGHTFORWARD BUSINESS, REMAINS A MYSTERY.
