|Title:||Capacity planning for container terminals (part 3)||Authors:||Ong, Florence Gau Zhen.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Maritime studies::Maritime management and business||Issue Date:||2009||Abstract:||Capacity planning of a port is very important as port plays a key role in international trade. Long-term capacity planning of a port ensures that it has the ability to cater to the future demand and hence boost the economic development of a nation. The paper analyses the various components involved when planning for long-term capacity and their inter-relationships. Demand forecasting, supply of required capacity, their intricate relationship with port services pricing and port ownership structures as well as the impact of inter-port competitiveness and port congestion on capacity planning are be covered in the paper. The paper also studies the methods for capacity improvements such as enhancing inter-modal freight transportation, port transportation network and through land reclamation. Case studies on Ports of Singapore, Tanjung Pelapas and Hong Kong are used to illustrate the concept.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/15961||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
