SHIPPING AND LINER TERMINALS -- A DELICATE BALANCE

Port authorities are under constant pressure to provide shipping lines with a fast, efficient service at a minimum cost for both the shipowner and the port. However, delays and queueing are becoming more common--often due to irregular shipping arrivals or an inability by some ports to handle fluctuations in the demand for port facilities. A report just released by the Marine Transport Centre at the University of Liverpool, England, explores the problems faced by shipping companies and port authorities on irregular ship arrivals at liner terminals with high fixed costs.
