The operators of Southampton Port (ABP) currently are running out of space for vehicles and containers. They are planning to utilise an area that is currently a military port on the west bank of the river.
This area has rail and road access and depth of water of 15 metres alongside. The military will move out imminently and the port will become available for a new tenant. The port wishes to move either the vehicle terminal across or build another container terminal.
Realistically explain how ABP are influenced by the external environment in which they wish to operate. Give relevant examples of applicable external environments.
Also examine ABP’s CSR policy and include relevant parts within your answer.
Maximum words 2500
Do not limit your answers to the key concepts given in the questions, think as an operator and what affects the port and/or ship. If it is a new container terminal think of all the external factors that could cause concern. If it is the vehicle terminal again think of restrictions.
Look up and investigate the size of vessels currently used and the facilities they will require.
Be practical. Look up the site of the question for extra marks.
