      1. Introduction. Freight transport is a complex industry, as supply chains lengthen across countries, seas and continents. Rapidly growing world trade pursuing economies of scale led to the introduction of mega-container vessels with 12–19, TEU capacity, straining infrastructure of major maritime gateways and putting pressure on key intermodal connections to the by: between the U.S and developing countries like China will mean that trade, and more particularly imports, will continue to grow in the foreseeable future. “Landside access to U.S. ports, congestion on highways around major gateways, delays at border crossings, and environmental.

      The resulting report–An Assessment of the U.S. Marine Transportation System—included recommendations, among them the facilitation of landside access to ports and the formation of an interagency Committee on the Marine Transportation System and a stakeholder Marine Transportation System National Advisory Council. Those and certain other. Based on the findings of the Coast Guard boarding or examination at sea, such vessels may be required to ensure that each access point to the ship is guarded by armed security guards and that they have total visibility of the exterior (both landside and waterside) of the vessel while in U.S. ports.

The Paducah-McCracken County Riverport Authority was established in by the legislative bodies of the County of McCracken and the City of Paducah under an equal ownership agreement. The port is a quasi-government agency that provides essential maritime services for the rural regions of Western Kentucky, Southern Illinois, Southeast Missouri, and Northwestern Tennessee.

Landside Access to Ports – Mr. Harder has conducted several studies for ports, stevedores, and government agencies with the broad goal of improving rail and motor carrier access to marine ports.

These projects typically involve evaluation of the current institutions and infrastructure with identification of related opportunities to improve efficiency and reduce environmental impact. The U.S.

marine transportation system handles large volumes of domestic and international freight in support of the Nation's economic activities.

As a vital part of that system, the Nation's container ports handle cargo and are sources of employment, revenue, and taxes for businesses or communities where they are : Members of the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) - representing more than public ports throughout the Western Hemisphere-and other ports worldwide recognize the need to protect and improve environmental conditions in and around their facilities.

To that end, AAPA, through its Harbors, Navigation and Environment (HN&E) Committee, has completed an Environmental Management. The new direct access road improvements will ease local and commuter traffic, and safely integrate container terminal traffic within existing operations as the Port’s water and land traffic continues to grow.

Technical Details: This project includes: more than million square feet of new bridge deck, drilled shafts, LF of. railways and equipment, and U.S. ports plan public and private-sourced landside investments of the same magnitude over each of the next fi ve years.

Annual spending on waterside infrastructure has been averaging about $ billion. While the U.S. has ports on the West Coast (Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland and Seattle/Tacoma) and.

An airport is an aerodrome with extended facilities, mostly for commercial air transport. Airports often have facilities to store and maintain aircraft, and a control airport consists of a landing area, which comprises an aerially accessible open space including at least one operationally active surface such as a runway for a plane to take off or a helipad, and often includes adjacent.

However, they require investments in U.S. ports such as increasing bridge clearances, channel depths, landside access, and port and terminal infrastructure [USACE IWR ]. The main characteristic of navigation channels that relates to condition is whether the authorized depth is.
