Business Finland is launching an Export Booster with focus on ports in the United States. The campaign will run for years 2022 – 2023. The launch event will be held online on the 1st of March at 16:00-16:45 Finnish time.
The Export Booster is targeted for Finnish companies who seek growth in exports of smart, green, connectivity or digital technologies for ports, port terminals and port and vessel operators. The Export Booster is an avenue for business opportunities, for new prospects, networks and ways to do business in the United States.
The ports in the United States and their terminal operators are investigating how to improve connectivity, efficiency of logistics, sustainability and visibility on the supply chain. How they would benefit from digitalization of transportation, use of real time data and increased automation? Green and sustainable technologies are equally on demand. Adoption of new technologies in the United States’ ports creates business opportunities for Finnish companies.
United States is investing 17 billion USD into modernizing infrastructure at ports and waterways, making it the largest federal investment in ports in US history. It is part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal. President Biden signed $1,2 trillion infrastructure bill into law on 15 November 2021. The biggest seaside port, Los Angeles, is currently facing a record backlog of shipping containers sitting on scores of ships waiting off the coast.
Welcome to hear more about the market situation, Export Booster’s targets, ports in scope, activity plans and introduction of the project team!
