The online space dedicated to the region’s port community

Welcome to porttalk

 

With the logistics sector busier than ever, we felt it the perfect time to launch a space for those involved in the industry. Porttalk is all about creating a hub to share news (through our free-to-subscribe newsletter) and to provide a forum to voice opinions.

 

 

Porttalk is also about being affordable. With opportunities priced at rates that don’t break the bank, our vision is to become the ‘go-to’ for everyone currently working in the sector, and those keen to get involved.
