Title: Topic 4 Transportation Terminals


1
Topic 4 Transportation Terminals
  • The Function of Transport Terminals
  • Ports and Rail Terminals
  • Airport Terminals
  • Terminals and Security

2
A The Function of Transport Terminals
  • 1. Transport Terminals
  • 2. Passengers Terminals
  • 3. Freight Terminals
  • 4. Terminal Costs

3
1. Transport Terminals
  • Concept
  • All spatial flows involve movements between
    terminals
  • Except personal vehicular and pedestrian trips.
  • Cannot travel individually, but in batches.
  • People have to go to bus terminals and airports
    first to reach their final destinations.
  • Freight has to reach a port, a rail yard or a
    distribution center before onward shipment.
  • Terminals are essential links in transportation
    chains
  • Consolidation.
  • Deconsolidation.
  • Transshipment.

1. Transport Terminals
  • Definition
  • Any location where freight and passengers either
    originates, terminates, or is handled in the
    transportation process.
  • Central and intermediate locations
  • Points of interchange within the same modal
    system.
  • Insure a continuity of the flows.
  • Particularly the case for modern air and port
    operations.
  • Require specific facilities to accommodate the
    traffic they handle.
  • Points of interchange within the same mode.
  • Points of transfer between modes.

2. Passengers Terminals
  • Overview
  • Passenger terminals require relatively little
    specific equipment.
  • Simple structures.
  • Basic amenities (waiting areas, ticket counters,
    food services).
  • Airports
  • The most complex terminals.
  • Passengers may spend several hours in the
    terminal.
  • Transiting, check-in and security checks, baggage
    pick up and customs and immigration on
    international arrivals.
  • Wide range of services.
  • Provide the very specific needs of the aircraft.

3. Freight Terminals
  • Specialized entities
  • Specific loading and unloading equipment.
  • Wide range of handling gear is required.
  • Differentiated functionally
  • Mode (maritime, rail).
  • Commodities (oil, grain, coal).
  • Bulk, general cargo and container terminals.
  • Warehousing
  • Assembling bundles of goods
  • Time-consuming and storage may be required.
  • Specialized infrastructures
  • Grain silos, storage tanks, and refrigerated
    warehouses, or simply space to stockpile.

1. Port Sites
  • Ports
  • Convergence between two domains of freight
    circulation
  • Land and maritime domains.
  • Facilitates convergence between land transport
    and maritime systems.
  • Handle the largest amounts of freight, more than
    any other types of terminals combined.
  • Infrastructures to accommodate transshipment
    activities.
  • Administration
  • Submitted to authorities.
  • Regulating infrastructure investments, its
    organization and development and its
    relationships with customers using its services.

2. Port Functions
  • Main functions
  • Supply services to freight (warehousing,
    transshipment, etc.).
  • Supply services to ships (piers, refueling,
    repairs, etc.).
  • Concomitantly a maritime and land terminal.
  • Hong Kong
  • Natural site.
  • Geographical position of a transit harbor for
    southern China.
  • Singapore
  • Outlet of the strategic Strait of Malacca.
  • Convergence of Southeast Asian transportation.
  • New York
  • Gateway of the North American Midwest.
  • Hudson / Erie canal system.

22
2. Port Functions
  • Port activities
  • About 4,600 ports in are in operation worldwide.
  • Less than 100 ports have a global importance.
  • High level of concentration in a limited number
    of large ports.
  • Linked to maritime access and infrastructure
    development.
  • Gateways of continental distribution systems.
  • Containerization has substantially changed port
    dynamics.
  • Port types
  • Monofunctionnal ports
  • Transit a limited array of commodities, most
    often dry or liquid bulks.
  • Specialized piers.
  • Polyfunctionnal ports
  • Several transshipment and industrial activities
    are present.
  • Variety of specialized and general cargo piers.

2. Port Functions
  • Intermediate hubs
  • Usage of a port terminal for transmodal
    operations.
  • Reduce the number of port calls and increase the
    throughput of the port calls left.
  • Frequency and the timeliness of services can be
    improved.
  • Hub-and-spoke
  • Interface between short distance feeder lines and
    long distance deep-sea lines, linking regional
    and global shipping networks.
  • Relay
  • Point of interchange between several long
    distance shipping lines.
  • Interlining
  • Interface between several pendulum routes along
    the same maritime range, but servicing a
    different array of port calls.

2. Port Functions
  • Problems related to port infrastructures
  • Ports along rivers are continuously facing
    dredging problems.
  • Width of rivers is strongly limiting capacity
  • Rarely a port along a river has the capacity to
    handle Post Panamax ships.
  • Lateral spread of infrastructures (Seaports).
  • Congestion in central areas.
  • Port / city competition for land (waterfront
    development).

30
3. Rail Terminals
  • Location
  • Not as space-extensive as airports and ports.
  • Suffer less from site constraints
  • Many established prior to the Second World War.
  • Cities were more compact and land acquisition was
    easier.
  • Passengers and freight terminals
  • Different locations.
  • Central railway stations
  • Feature of most cities and tend to be located in
    downtown areas.
  • Key elements of urban centrality and activity.
  • Freight rail stations
  • Consume more space.
  • Tend to be located at the periphery.
  • Older yards tend to be located at the margin of
    CBDs.

C Airport Terminals
  • 1. Airport Sites
  • 2. Airport Functions

38
1. Airport Sites
  • Concept
  • Airports act as the main technical support of air
    transport.
  • Increased pressures on terminals
  • Expansion of existing terminals.
  • New terminals construction.
  • Replace airports no longer able to cope with the
    increased traffic.
  • International / Regional
  • Role and function in the international and
    regional urban system.
  • Centrality (being an origin and destination of
    air traffic) and intermediacy (a hub or a gateway
    between destinations).
  • Local
  • Level of accessibility of the airport over the
    metropolitan area it services.
  • Daily flows of planes, passengers, freight to and
    from the airport's terminals.

39

1. Airport Sites
  • Local site requirements.
  • Airfields
  • Runways and parking areas.
  • Long enough to accommodate the takeoff and
    landing of commercial planes.
  • About 3,300 meters (10,000 feet) are required for
    a 747 to takeoff.
  • Slope (less 1), altitude and meteorological
    conditions.
  • About 32 movements (landings and takeoffs) per
    hour are possible on a commercial runway under
    optimal conditions.
  • Terminals
  • Freight and passenger transit infrastructures.
  • Infrastructures for plane accommodation.
  • Linked with local transport systems.

1. Airport Sites
  • Land requirements
  • Land required by modern airport operations is
    considerable
  • Landing and take off of planes.
  • Buffer between the adjacent urban areas to limit
    the noise generated.
  • Parking areas in airports located in car
    dependent cities.
  • Peripheral sites
  • Sufficient quantities of land available.
  • The more recently an airport was constructed, the
    more likely this airport is to be located far
    from the city center.
  • Expansion and relocation
  • Extremely difficult.
  • Most airports have grown at locations chosen in
    the 1950s and 1960s.
  • Most airports are now surrounded.
  • Only sites available are far from the urban core.

D Terminal Security
  • 1. Passengers
  • 2. Freight

57
1. Passengers
  • A focus on terminals
  • Access is monitored and controlled.
  • Movements are channeled along pathways that
    provide safe access to and from platforms and
    gates.
  • Safety and theft have been a concern for freight
    terminals.
  • Airports
  • Focus of security concerns for many decades.
  • High-jacking aircraft came to the fore in the
    1970s
  • Terrorist groups in the Middle East exploited the
    lack of security to commandeer planes for ransom
    and publicity.
  • Established screening procedures for passengers
    and bags.
  • Reductions in hijackings
  • Terrorists changed their tactics by placing bombs
    in un-accompanied luggage and packages,

58
1. Passengers
  • Hub-and-spoke networks
  • Strain on the security process.
  • Disparities in the effectiveness of passenger
    screening.
  • Impacts of September 11, 2001
  • Department of Homeland Security established the
    Transportation Security Authority (TSA).
  • Strict new security measures
  • Restricting access to airport facilities.
  • Fortifying cockpits.
  • Extensive security screening of passengers.
  • Screening
  • More rigorous inspections of passengers and their
    baggage at airports.
  • Biometric identification for foreign nationals
    (fingerprint, facial recognition).

59
1. Passengers
  • Costs
  • All screeners (45,000) are now part of the
    Federal workforce.
  • Purchase of screening machinery and training of
    personnel.
  • Additional delays and aggravation for passengers.
  • Downturn in air transport.
  • Some passengers may switch to other modes.

60
2. Freight
  • Issues
  • Less regulated and greater international
    dimensions.
  • Illegal immigrants, drug smuggling, piracy.
  • The container makes it extremely difficult to
    identify illicit and/or dangerous cargoes.
  • Hubbing
  • Compounds the problem.
  • Large numbers of containers are required to be
    handled with minimum delays and inconvenience.
  • Automated Identity System
  • Permanently marked and visible identity number.
  • Record maintained of flag, port of registry and
    address of the registered owner.

61
2. Freight
  • Each port must undertake a security assessment
  • Assets and facilities.
  • Effects of damages that might be caused.
  • Evaluate the risks, and identify weaknesses to
    security.
  • Customs clearance
  • All cargoes destined for the US.
  • Prior to the departure of the ship.
  • Biometric identification for seafarers to be
    implemented and that national databases of
    sailors to be maintained.
