Port (Harbor) Elements: Design Principles and Considerations

  • Gregory P. Tsinker


As a part of a total transportation system, ports play a vital role in the, overall system efficiency. They provide a sufficient storage capacity in that a ship need not wait for its cargo from a train and similarly, a train need not wait for a ship in order to have a storage area to unload its contents. In other words, the port serves as a buffer between the two transportation modes.
