INLAND CONTAINER TERMINAL-FUNCTION AND RATIONALE

Increasing commercial and recreational pressures on urban waterfront lands, growing demand by seaports for back-up areas and changes in cargo-distribution concepts have caused the relocation of several port functions and the establishment of inland container terminals. Variously called inland container depot, or terminal, the implementation of the concept has affected trade-flows, specific routeings between ports and hinterlands and some traditional port functions. Topics discussed in the article include function, structure and location of terminals.
