SOME ECONOMIC ASPECTS OF PORT TRAFFIC REGULATION
The problem of congestion in port approaches will become more serious in the future and will present the possibility of several alternative solutions. This paper identifies the nature of these alternatives as well as the economic characteristics of congestion. Port traffic regulation is part of the overall economic problem of deciding what capacity should be provided over time and how that capacity should be allocated between port users. Maximization of the difference between capacity costs including regulation costs and the value of reduced delay resulting therefrom should be the objective of any system.
