Year of Graduation: 2020

Each year, an increasing level of containerization and the growing volume of container intermodal transportation increase the burden on seaports and transshipment facilities. As a result, the objects of marine terminals, as elements of the supply chain, are increasingly exposed to the growing volumes of cargo flows. To reduce the pressure and increase the capacity of the seaports an increasing number of countries resort to implementing the concept of "dry port". Switching some seaports of cargo flows to the “dry” port zone allows to free up additional space on the coastal port sites and speed up the process of processing sea vessels. This research is aimed at studying the formation of dry port effectiveness indicators. The paper presents the interaction of the main influencing factors and performance indicators of the “dry” container terminal. Also, in the course of this research, the possibilities of regulating the effects of the irregular cargo flows through the flexibility of the fleet of transshipment equipment, while maintaining operational efficiency, were examined.
