Port Management and Operations



Patrick Alderton qualified as an Extra Master, and then became a lecturer of commercial transport at the London Guildhall University in the 1970s. He later moved to the World Maritime University in Sweden as the Professor of Ports and Shipping in the late 1980s.


Ports around the world have implemented variations of PMIS. Many major U.S. ports have implemented PMIS to varying extents including the Port of Virginia, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Port of Oakland, and Port of Los Angeles. Ports of any size can benefit from a well-designed PMIS, with large and complex container operations benefiting the most.


The course will be conducted in both English and French by the Institut Portuaire d'Enseignement et de Recherche (IPER), with the main purpose to assist developing countries to improve the management and operational efficiency of their ports.


Ports Ports The term generally refers to places alongside navigable water (e.g., oceans, rivers, or lakes) with facilities for the loading and unloading of passengers or cargo from ships, ferries, and other commercial vessels. These facilities may be operated by different entities including state or local public port authorities, private terminal operators, and federal agencies. Activities associated with ports include operation of vessels, cargo handling equipment, locomotives, trucks, vehicles, and storage and warehousing facilities related to the transportation of cargo or passengers as well as the development and maintenance of supporting infrastructure (also see inland ports).can serve a range of vesselsvesselsA ship or large boat. including recreational watercraft, barges, ferries, and ocean-going cargocargoThe freight (goods, products) carried by a ship, barge, train, truck or plane. and passenger ships.1 The United States has over 150 deep-draftdraftThe depth of a loaded vessel in the water taken from the level of the waterline to the lowest point of the hull of the vessel; depth of water, or distance between the bottom of the ship and waterline. ports, which serve ocean-going ships.2


The following ports are Landlord PortsLandlord Ports At a landlord port, the port authority owns the wharves, which it then rents or leases to a terminal operator (usually a stevedoring company). The operator invests in cargo-handling equipment (forklifts, cranes, etc.), hires longshore laborers to operate such lift machinery and negotiates contracts with ocean carriers (steamship services) to handle the unloading and loading of ship cargoes.:


Transportation plays, a very critical role in our day-to-day life. Sea transportation continues to play a vital role in the movement of goods and hence ports are of paramount importance for a smooth and efficient movement of sea transportation. With the increasing vessel sizes and ownership models changing continuously it is but crucial that ports need to be adaptable and responsive in this competitive world to sustain and gain an edge to attract more business.

Efficient and effective transportation, logistics & port operations management are indisputable for maintaining a good reputation and for perpetuating a solid relationship with your customers, based on trust and results. Around the world, transportation hubs have to contend with modernity and multiple challenges in order to ensure a very high level of service. Intensive planning and well-defined procedures must be carried out in order to ensure sound management. Among the challenges that must be addressed on a daily basis, corporate and legislative regulations, security and significant logistics needs are just a few examples. In addition, the administration of a transportation & logistics hub requires rapid responses and vigorous risk management in order to prevent and deal with the various possibilities of accidents.


The integration of our internal audit objectives within our business operations is a novel approach that has exceeded our highest expectations in terms of the effectiveness of our compliance initiative. The Global Control Standard implementation program has allowed us to promote a culture of governance and process improvement across the organization.


The mapping of transportation, logistics & port operations brings a much better understanding and agility in terms of resource and traffic management. Such actions ensure the avoidance of disasters caused by the mistaken certainties of experienced managers relying only on their years of experience. In fact, they will be the first to benefit from the EPC product, because such solutions provide real peace of mind. They will be able to make better decisions, more quickly, and will have an exceptional vision on all issues


Our products will provide the vision and understanding necessary to ensure efficient, agile and problem-free operations. By eliminating many unnecessary overlapping processes, the EPC platform will allow you to eliminate unnecessary costs, maximize your resources and pave the way for smart development of a healthy port.


The SPM performs functions necessary to support the strategic flow of deploying and redeploying forces, unit equipment, and sustainment supply in the sea ports of embarkation and hand-off to Combatant Commanders at sea ports of debarkation.


In our current battle space, SDDC Headquarters, brigade, and battalion commanders exercise command and control of single port management at over 100 ports worldwide. These commanders lead cross-functional sets of transportation professionals, including experts in traffic management, documentation, operations, finance, information technology, and cargo handling.


The Department of Defense uses the single port management approach for all worldwide common-user aerial and seaport operations. As outlined in the Unified Command Plan, USTRANSCOM provides worldwide, common-user aerial and seaport terminal management and may provide terminal services by contract.


SDDC has port terminal management responsibility through all phases of the theater port operations continuum, from a bare beach deployment to a commercial contract fixed-port support deployment. The team establishes direct water terminal operations, including supervising movement operations, port handling contracts, cargo documentation, CONUS security operations, arranging for logistical and life support, and the overall flow of information.


In addition to providing strategic deployment status information to Combatant Commanders and managing the workload of the seaports of debarkation port operators, SDDC transportation brigades and other SDDC units manage ports that use contracted labor.


This program overviews both overall port's activities and maritime transport. It allows port managers to see how their individual activity fits within and affects the entire spectrum of operational and commercial activities running in the complex interface of maritime transport. The program defines ports, their constantly changing and developing functions, and their operations. It introduces key concepts, analyzes various types of ports, their evolution, and the impact left by ship technology.
