    Abstract : Concerns over the threats of terrorism, piracy, and armed robbery against ships resulted in a number of International Maritime Organization (IMO) initiatives in the 1980s and 1990s including, inter alia, the establishment of an anti-piracy program, the development of guidelines for ship security, and the adoption of the Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts Against the Safety of Maritime Navigation (SUA Convention), 1988. The September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001 elevated security concerns to its highest levels. READ MORE

  5. 5. Emergence and significance of dry ports

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Violeta Roso; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Övrig industriell teknik och ekonomi; Other industrial engineering and economics; intermodal transport; seaport inland access; intermodal terminal; dry port; environment.;

    Abstract : With increasing maritime containerized transport, efficient seaport terminals and inland access are essential for the entire intermodal transportation chain to function. Improvement only in maritime transport and in seaport terminals without improvements in seaport inland access is not sufficient since a growth in the sea flow implies an almost proportional increase in the inland flow.
