Port & Terminal Management 2020
Foreword by Richard
Chief Executive, British Ports Association
Port and terminal managers have had to adapt fast to meet rising
demand driven by the rapid expansion in world trade during the 21st
century. Globalisation has put port models under growing pressure
in increasingly competitive cargo markets. Better productivity -
through expansion or more efficient use of existing assets - is
crucial for economic survival.
Port and Terminal Management has been written, reviewed
and extensively revised by industry experts. It examines all
operational aspects of port functions, from financing, legal
concerns and planning through to operations, marketing,
competition, equipment and infrastructure.
Looking at ownership models and the trends in privatisation,
Port and Terminal Management analyses the management
techniques that can improve services and maximise profit potential.
The age-old issue of labour efficiency is weighed against the
growing use of automation, while the effects of trade
specialisation and larger ships are also given due attention in
this informative book.
