Emergence and significance of dry ports
Paper i proceeding, 2007
The purpose of this paper is to present the dry port concept, to identify and categorize existing dry ports for the Port of Göteborg and to evaluate the concept from an environmental perspective. The conclusions indicate that implementation of a dry port in the seaport’s hinterland enables the seaport to increase its terminal capacity and hence manage the problem of lack of space. The benefits from dry ports also derive from the modal shift from road to rail; resulting in a reduced congestion at the seaport gates and its surroundings and consequently in improved inland access, as well as in lower environmental effect.
