Dry Ports
Magazine article, 2009

In a recent doctoral thesis, the author seeks to define the dry port concept and develop the concept through the identification of its impacts as well as the factors that influence its implementation. According to the thesis, the dry port concept is based on a seaport directly connected by rail to inland intermodal terminals, where shippers can leave and/or collect their goods in intermodal loading units as if directly at the seaport. With dry port implementation CO2 emissions should decrease, queues and long waiting times at seaport terminals should be avoided, and the risk of road accidents reduced.
