PORT PRO OF THE MONTH

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 year, we saw the creation of North Sea Port, the result of a merger of Zeeland Seaports (NL) and the Port of Ghent (B). Given that the new port authority is led by the two CEOs of the two previous port authorities, we thought it was a good idea to have an interview with both Mr. Daan Schalck and Mr. Jan Lagasse.
