Port Feeder Barge: Advanced Waterborne Container Logistics for Ports

ABSTRACT: The Port Feeder Barge as a new type of harbour vessel has been designed ? firstly for the operation within the port of Hamburg. Other major and even minor ports could benefit from the operation of this innovative type of vessel as well as it improves the efficiency and at the same time reduces the ecological footprint of intra-port container haulage. Additionally it can even facilitate container handling at places which are not suited at all for this kind of operation.
