The article concerns itself with a general review of the cargo handling procedures that should be followed in developing countries with young and developing port facilities including suggestions on how to facilitate the rapid, safe, and effective loading and discharge of cargoes. Suggestions pertinent to both break bulk and unit load cargoes are included. Two of the major suggestions brought out in the article are that paperwork be kept to a minimum and that computers should be used but only partially at first. Computer use should grow with the port. The development of computer use is also reviewed.
