A short historical review of the development of facilities for loading and unloading vessels carrying iron ore is followed by a discussion of the modern trends which influence the choice and design of such facilities, in particular the increase in ship size, the specialization in ship design, and the increase in output of both mines and steelworks. The equipment suitable for loading and discharge at the required rates is described and illustrated by reference to the most recent installations at a number of the more important ore ports.
