The differentiation of the value depending on the category of goods is one of the most interesting lessons in the use of this tool. Outside the port sources, the studies estimated ad hoc basis coefficients of adding value by type of goods. A better understanding of the added value generated by the type of goods can become a valuable tool in the selection of development decisions or investment port authorities. Khalid, (2014) shows that the so-called traffic "rich" as containers or merchandise are creators of value per tonne that the goods called "poor" as dry bulk or liquid. However, the largest tonnage of goods in bulk in the total traffic on a port often results in that a large share of total port VAS is related to such goods. People must…show more content…
Whereas reviewing the port activities, it is compulsory to settle upon the framework and the activities related that impact the purpose of the port capacity. Capacity is a responsibility of final result of production at every stage of port operation. It is important to think that the deterministic tasks of physical capacity are related with the infrastructure presented, related procedures, most successful and other aspects of production applied in each of the port actions (Peter, Brian and Claude, 2012). Developments in hinterland links must be incorporated into approaches for capacity management. Ports should provide enough (reserve) capacity to maritime traffic, both regarding goods-handling services and hinterland transport…show more content…
The port development policy must be based on two concerns to keep or capture traffic creators of wealth and position in the markets in strong growth and future, such as container traffic. Furthermore, implantation of heavy industry on port communities is not so much news as the country generating bulk trades tend to "repatriate" the local processing activities. The concern of the Port Authority, companies related to port and local development institutions must be to promote adaptation of the fabric of port industries in line with developments in traffic. Thus, if the port is developing container traffic, a logistics platform consolidation and break, a distribution center offering various services to the goods or activities related to the repair of containers or management of container parks, etc., will be created. Parallel to the development of industries, another concern must be closely involved trading activities and shipping (Wayne, 2012). The ports of Northern Europe and large port cities like Singapore have built their reputation on this combination of activities is lacking in France where shippers feel isolated and misunderstood maritime actors. The concepts of community and port agglomeration make sense
