MORE THAN THE AVERAGE PORT

SUBTITLE: ONE OF THE MAIN EFFECTS OF THE GLOBALIZATION AND DEREGULATION OF THE PORTS INDUSTRY WORLDWIDE HAS BEEN TO GREATLY INCREASE COMPETITION BETWEEN PORTS AND TERMINALS. THIS IN TURN HAS PUT PROFIT MARGINS UNDER PRESSURE LIKE NEVER BEFORE, FORCING MANY OPERATING COMPANIES TO CONSIDER EVER MORE INNOVATIVE WAYS OF GENERATING REVENUE. ONE OF THE DIRECT RESULTS HAS BEEN FOR PORTS AND TERMINALS TO PLAY A MAJOR ROLE IN THE PROVISION OF SO-CALLED VALUE-ADDED LOGISTICS SERVICES.
