Problem

Overcrowded port warehousing

Nature:

A pricing policy which encourages port users to allow their goods to remain in the transit shed instead of being warehoused outside the port, leads to overcrowding of the sheds and ultimately to inadequate utilization of quays and other equipment, delays to ships, waste of gang time, and so on.

Broader Problems:
Inadequate port infrastructure
