LIMITED SPACE--UNLIMITED THROUGHPUTS

The author, who is affiliated with Modern Terminals Limited, a container facility located in Hong Kong, says that despite his having often heard it said of container terminals that this one or that one had a specfific and limited capacity of containers per year, it has, in fact, been extremely difficult to determine the capacity of his terminal. With only limited space available, the introduction of additional equipment, back-up land and electronic systems have increased throughput from 400,000 TEUs per annum to almost 1.3 million TEUs. He discusses these steps and other measures that have enabled the achievement of this dramatic increase in throughput.
