This chapter identifies the principal elements of time spent in port. Section 1 deals with the cost of time in port, with tables showing typical ship voyages and port times; 2. annual costs for a fast cargo liner (1975-76 prices) and 3. annual costs for a large bulk carrier (1975-76 prices). Delays in port are investigated in section 2, with a table giving a breakdown of delays during cargo working hours. The next table shows a breakdown of time in port for a typical break-bulk general cargo vessel. The benefits of reduced time in port are examined in the next section for both different types of ship and for the types of charter under which a ship may operate, and there is a table showing the potential benefit of a 10% reduction of port time on various types of vessel.
