NORTH AMERICAN CONTAINER PORT CAPACITY

Container volumes through North American ports have been rapidly increasing each year. The ports and supporting rail and truck infrastructures have not expanded accordingly, however, and significant capacity issues are now developing. This research offers an initial exploratory assessment of current and future port capacity problems including timing of capacity shortages, key capacity drivers, and resolution strategies. In doing so, this research finds that many critical capacity factors are beyond port control and require coordinated strategic and tactical planning with numerous stakeholders.
