This course will provide a fundamental understanding of how containerized commerce drives container terminal operations, and how those operations drive infrastructure. The course will show how the demands for capacity, efficiency, and safety drive equipment selection, properties, and impacts configuration and layout of wharf, yard, gate, rail, and support areas. It will also demonstrate how these demands impact building sizing, placement, and access patterns, human movements and activities on the terminal and the essentials of the basis of design. Although specific to containers, many of the concepts are applicable to the design of roll-on/roll-off, breakbulk, and dry bulk port operating facilities. Similarities and differences will be highlighted.
