AAPA is making some revisions to the way we present content in the Advisory. Recognizing that fewer articles means less clicking (or tapping, if you read the Advisory on a mobile device), we will be consolidating port news thematically to enable our readers to access more information in a single click (or tap). We also hope that this will enable readers to locate port industry news by interest area or professional discipline, honing in on the areas that are most relevant.
