Dry Ports, A Global Perspective
Challenges and Developments in Serving HinterlandseBook - 2013
As centres for logistics activities, seaports have traditionally been the focus of maritime logistics chains. However, changes in production patterns, supported by the development of rapid transport of goods over long distances, have altered the logistics landscape. Comprised of case studies and state of the art examples of measures taken in different parts of the world with varying economic, social, institutional and environmental realities, this book shows the complexity and diverse approaches of the development of inland ports, terminal and dryports.
