This section, dedicated to port and shipping activities, includes research papers, focus articles, and interviews with Italian and foreign industry leaders. The ports are assessed from the point of view of their economic impact on the territory in which they are located, and of their appeal in terms of investments and the international competitiveness of their infrastructures. The ship-owning industry is analysed through research papers and comparisons between Italian and foreign industry players. Special emphasis will also be placed on the insurance sector.

The Belt and Road Initiative: analysis of a geo-strategic phenomenon and reflections on the role of Italy and of its port system

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

Much has already been said and written on the Belt and Road Initiative, especially following the Chinese president’s visit in Italy in March 2019, which provided the opportunity to sign a Memorandum of Understanding including several collateral agreements ranging from infrastructure and transport to exchange of data and know-how and included trade agreements and partnership projects in the fields of research and industry.

Before discussing the core of this paper, it seems necessary to briefly outline the reasons that led to the initial design, development and expansion of the BRI, which is already encompassing more than 100 countries and seems bound to involve many more.

Alliances and container shipping

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

Global alliances have become a dominant feature of container shipping. They are cooperation agreements between container lines (carriers) on operational matters. Alliances usually consist of a series of agreements with global coverage on sharing vessels and slots on these vessels. The aim of such alliances is to achieve economies of scale and wider service coverage.
Whereas the early generations of global alliances that emerged in the mid-1990s pro-vided a vehicle for cooperation between smaller carriers, alliances are nowadays co-operation tools for the largest container lines: the three global alliances (2M, Ocean and THE Alliance) that are operational since April 2017 regroup the eight largest con-tainer carriers of the world.
