Abstract
  • This report is an exposition of an eleven week training internship in the Port of Portland (POP). My interest in serving an internship at POP came as a result of a field trip in the spring of 1980 during which I was fascinated by the ports operations and diversity. During the internship I was exposed to various aspects of port activities, including methods of port pricing and modern techniques of cargo handling in the marine terminals... This report was compiled from a) observations of port operations, b) personal interviews with port authorities, steamship agents, ship captains, and c) a literature search for relevant materials in the libraries of the Port of Portland, Portland State University, and Oregon State University. This discussion is not meant to give a complete picture of all underlying policies of pricing method or cargo handling in POP, because time and resources are not adequate. Also, it is apparent from this study that there are no easy solutions to Somalia's port problems. However, this report may serve as a starting point to explore these problems and their possible solutions.
