Abstract

The main purpose of the thesis is to contribute to the understanding of the congestion process at some specialized berths which load coal as a bulk cargo. The problem of port congestion can be traced back to inadequate planning at some stage; however, the gradual rate of expansion at most ports has usually served to conceal the problem by allowing time for corrective action to be taken.
