Since 2007, both Ian and Peter have worked hard to develop the product before you today, which delivers news and analysis of an industry that has benefited from dizzying highs and suffered crushing lows, all documented across 66 issues.

time was right for new ownership that has the resources to develop the HLPFI brand. Henceforth, HLPFI is now part of DVV Media International. Ian and Peter will remain with the company to facilitate the transition process; both are happy to address any queries that you may have. With prospects for project logisticians decidedly more positive – albeit tempered by myriad


challenges – HLPFI remains steadfast in its mission to deliver critical insight on a business that continues to achieve transport engineering marvels. And, in light of this sector’s achievements, HLPFI has launched the Heavy Lift Awards, which will


celebrate those companies and individuals whose vision, innovation and commitment has helped shape this vibrant industry. The response to the launch of the Heavy Lift Awards has been nothing short of overwhelming.


Transport engineering excellence is almost commonplace in this sector and, based on the entries received so far, our judging panel will have a difficult task in deciding whose achievements deserve to win. With 12 awards up for grabs at the Antwerp Hilton on October 15, 2019, I encourage you to submit


your entries, the deadline being April 12, 2019. The clock is ticking and, just maybe, your organisation can take home one of the prestigious ‘Evies’? More information about the Heavy Lift Awards can be found at – www.heavyliftawards.com – on


pages 54-55 of this issue, or by contacting Annie Roberts (ar@heavyliftpfi.com). In this issue of HLPFI you will find detailed reports on the volatility of the upstream oil and gas


sector (pg32), onshore renewables investment blowing hot and cold (pg78), and the challenges stifling Turkey’s logistics sector (pg44), plus a great deal more. You will also find our standalone Review 2018/Outlook 2019 supplement. Some of the industry’s


leading figures discuss the challenges they face as the market stabilises, and the preparations being made ahead of a potential uptick. As each year passes, it is tradition to make a wish. Mine, for world leaders to exercise common sense,


while pursuing peace and stability, may sound unrealistic based on recent experience. Ever the optimist, I find myself drawn to a passage from Tennyson. “Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier’.” Here’s to that coming to fruition!

Our front cover photograph shows the heaviest piece ever loaded on to a ro-ro vessel in Japan: a 275-ton rotor on Wallenius Wilhelmsen Ocean’s vessel Parsifal in Yokohama. The rotor was loaded using a 12-axle jack-up trailer and stowed on blocks and beams onboard the vessel. Wallenius Wilhelmsen Ocean’s vessels are able to accommodate cargo weighing up to 400 tons, 12 m wide and 6.1 m high.
