#IMDOshippingreview –The latest IMDO Weekly Shipping Market Review includes the following stories as detailed below.

Irish Ports: New Master Plan for Dublin Docklands - The Master Plan is a very comprehensive document covering social regeneration, economic development, land use, transportation, infrastructure, urban design, arts, culture, tourism and leisure. It now has a more realistic approach to developing the docklands in a way that will ensure a balance between commercial and residential. 

Global Ports: Floating Harbour Transhipper - A floating harbour transhipper (FHT) is similar to an offshore warehouse. The idea is that cargo is loaded onto the FHT directly at the point of production and brought out to the bigger ships rather than having them come in and docking in port. This idea has evolved from the lightering crane barge, which is already well established in some countries.

ECSA Concerns over EU Port Reform - In a press release earlier this week the European Community Ship Owners Association expressed concerns regarding the watering down of proposed Regulation to establish a framework on market access to port services and financial transparency of ports. Concerns are raised that Member States are contemplating excluding cargo handling and passenger services from the Regulation while the exclusion of pilotage remains uncertain.
