A COMPARISON OF RO-RO AND LO-LO TERMINAL COSTS

The author's approach to comparing costs is described in detail with a list of factors (other than the method of ship-to-shore transfer) which affect terminal costs per ton of throughput. The comparison is made between Short Sea Terminals having a high density Ro-Ro Freight Ferry operation, a Short Sea Container Lo-Lo Berth and Deep Sea Terminals, with tables showing the relevant costs broken down for equipment, labour and fixed capital. A modern conventional berth is discussed as well as a container berth and a mixed operation. The author analyses his findings and details the areas where costs appear to be particularly low or high.
