  • Description:
    This study is an attempt to review the capacity of ports on the U.S. Atlantic Coast, the past, present and projected future demand imposed upon them and their resulting ability to meet their future requirements. The changing functions of ports are discussed as they affect port operations themselves as well as the port interface with various modes of transportations. The facilities in the subject ports are analyzed including their past and current use, and an attempt made to derive a measure of port capacity. The increasing competition among ports for the same hinterland which has resulted in the growing concept of the regional port. To analyze the competitive effects among ports serving the same region or regional parts multiport models were developed. The use and structure of multiports and multiport models is discussed, with particular reference to the analysis of the U.S. Atlantic seaboard. Future needs are estimated by projecting demand and forecasting type and form of commodity movements as well as trends in transportation technology. The report concludes with the requirements for change in the physical form and use of the U.S. Atlantic ports to meet such future demands. This report is the first of a two part sequel. The second report develops and presents the methodology for multipurpose port and multiport analysis, and planning, and will be published in 1973.
