Port Operations, Planning and Logistics by Khalid Bichou

By Khalid Bichou

Port Operations, making plans and Logistics bargains particular research of worldwide port platforms via utilising either theoretical and functional (managerial) techniques to port operations, administration and coverage. the writer attracts from an extraordinary mix of in depth cross-management specialist event and confirmed multidisciplinary educational services to supply a dependent book that cuts throughout various study fields; economics, engineering, operations, expertise, administration, technique and coverage. The publication explores quite a few port themes together with ICT and know-how purposes, funding and financing, pricing and asset administration, contracts laws, safeguard defense and environmental administration. each one is supported with case reviews and sensible examples of the newest advancements within the box.

Example text

Institutions refer to channel members (shippers, ocean carriers, ports, freight forwarders, regulators, etc) while functions describe what channel members do (production, transport, cargo handling, storage, regulation, etc). Often, this distinction is blurred given that many functions of port management are operated by channel members other than ports, for instance, when a shipper or a shipping line owns or 28 Introduction operates ports and terminals. A thorough discussion of channel structure and design in ports from marketing and supply chain perspectives is provided in Chapters 9 and 10 respectively.

Superior port design and redundancy improves a system’s reliability. For instance, enhancing the methods and execution of port planning, operations and maintenance would improve the quality of services provided with a view to satisfying users’ expectations. In a similar vein, developing systems and processes with quick recovery and resilience in the event of failure reduces the adverse consequences of disruption. Therefore, both the design and redundancy components of port equipment, operational procedures and management systems must be taken into account when assessing port safety and security.

When ports are viewed as nodes of the shipping and inter-modal transport network, the graph theory can be used to study certain shipping and related port aspects such as path flow estimation (freight flow modelling and traffic forecasting), network equilibrium (deterministic or stochastic user equilibrium), port and depot location, and route and mode choice (traffic assignment). When ports are analysed as individual spatial networks, the graph theory can be used to study several issues of port operations and short-term (operational) planning such as the routing, deployment and scheduling of port equipment and vehicles as well as labour and manpower.
