CONTAINER TRANSFER BETWEEN SHIP AND RAIL WAGON AT PORTS

A properly organized interface between port and rail container operations could result in considerable savings in costs to both port operators and railway administrations. The article examines the methods currently used for the transfer of containers between ship/stack and rail wagon at ports, and recommends that in future container berth planning, the nearer to the quay or the stack that this transfer takes place, the better for both port and rail.
