Increased growth in e-commerce, supply chain challenges related to the pandemic, and the growth of the offshore wind industry require increased room for operations and warehousing at ports in our region. Pressure on port facilities to maximize efficiency and increase their footprint will become an ever-greater challenge in the years to come while aging infrastructure and land use policies threaten to limit growth. This panel defines the need for ports to expand and improve productivity, and discusses the means to realize opportunities for funding capital improvements and expansion, and the effect of limited growth on local economies, communities, and offshore wind.
