Meet Åsa Kärnebro, Harbour Master, Port of Gothenburg, in the 77th episode of the @ShippingPodcast. Åsa is a Master Mariner with long experience; all from sailing on tankers, teaching university students at the Maritime Academy to the HR responsibility for seagoing personnel.
Being a Harbour Master entails a lot of different responsibilities, more than you think. Åsa is sharing all the different stakeholders involved in a port call, but also the responsibility the port has towards the general public and what challenges that lay ahead of the port when it comes to digitalization.
We also find out that there are 4 female Harbour Masters in Europe. That must be viewed as a very male-dominated line of business.
Thank you for listening. Remember that I love feedback! I am @lenagothberg on all social channels. Await your shout-out!
