Port and terminal management 2015
Foreword by Kim Fejfer, CEO, APM Terminals, The Hague,
Port and terminal managements have had to adapt fast to meet
rising demand driven by continuing high levels of world trade.
Globalisation is putting port models under increasing pressure to
remain competitive in fickle cargo markets. Increasing productivity
- through expansion or better utilisation of existing assets - is a
must for economic survival.
Port and Terminal Management considers all operational
aspects of port functions, from financing, legal concerns and
planning to competition, equipment and marketing.
Reviewed by leading industry experts, Port and Terminal
Management considers the trend of privatisation and other
ownership models and looks at the marketing techniques that can
maximise profit potential. The age-old issue of cost-effective and
efficient labour is weighed against the growing use of automation,
while the effect on bottom lines of trade specialisation and larger
ships is also given due attention. Financing sources and
international legal considerations specific to port operations also
feature in this informative book.
