Since 2013, ESPO has been putting each month a port in the picture through its “port of the month” articles. After four years, we started with a new series of articles called the “port pro of the month”. Every month, we pay a visit to a port executive who will present us his or her port and also help us understand what it means to lead a European port. 

This month, our Secretary General, visited Aarhus and met with Thomas Haber Borch the CEO of Port of Aarhus. Port of Aarhus was hosting the Conference of the Danish Port Association. In what follows, you will read more about sustainability and digitalisation in this Danish Port, as well as investments in the port sector. Discover the other interesting topics our port pro of the month addressed below!
