In the fall of 1971, the Maritime Administration contacted the Management Research Division of the National Maritime Research Center and asked us to develop a course and discipline concerning the Management of a Seaport. This manuscript is the foundation document for a course in scientific management of a modern seaport. The objective of the work is to provide the reader with a basic understanding of seaport systems, their development and operation, and their interrelationships with land and water carriers. It is designed to broaden the perspective and understanding of the vessel operator and to give visibility and extension to the range of career opportunities available in the broader spectrum of United States Maritime Industries. The authors believe that the reader will find this work to be the most comprehensive treatment of the port industry recently undertaken. The scope and applicability of the text has been broadened by including a series of practical problems in business administration, including law, economics, finance, management, accounting, marketing, planning, public relations, and personnel administration.
