THE SECOND BULK HANDLING AND TRANSPORT BOOK: PROCEEDING OF THE SECOND CONFERENCE
In spite of conservative forecasts for the medium term growth in seaborne bulk trade, the demand for greater efficiency continues to impose pressures on the shipping, terminal and handling equipment industries. As a result, the bulk handling and transport industry will look increasingly towards technological innovation to meet such pressures, and, at the same time,facilitate new business opportunities. The possibilities for high capacity quayside continuous unloaders and self discharging ocean vessels were among the main topics of discussion. Attention was paid to topics such as terminal planning and operation, commodity trends, the structure of the bulk carrier fleet, the adequacy of existing weighing techniques as well as handling equipment efficiency and environmental protection.
