Abstract: Throughout history, the concept of mega vessels has always been the topic of relevance and the main reason for this is the constant need to lower cost in order to remain competitive within the market. This trend of constant interest for bigger and bigger vessels can be observed within all the major maritime sectors: bulk, tankers and containers. In this report, the focus will be on container vessels. In order to avoid becoming obsolete due to the incapability of handling these larger vessels, ports, especially those that are involved in the top few trade routes with mega vessels sailing, will have to constantly upgrade themselves to keep up with the vessels’ specifications. This report aims to analyse the possible changes that a port will have to undertake in the circumstances of a 30,000 TEU vessel and evaluate the impacts that these changes will bring along. In this report, we will be making use of both primary and secondary data to substantiate our findings. Due to the lack of qualitative data results, a primarily qualitative perspective such as the PESTLE analysis was used to evaluate the findings. The consolidated evaluation of opinions from multiple sources on the topic will be helpful for future references.
