  • In order to remain competitive ports must now integrate themselves into the supply chain, they need to become key elements within value-driven chain systems by adding value and creating a competitive advantage
  • The selection criteria on which seaports will be chosen are as elements within a supply chain are based on efficiency and reliability as the focus shifts from port performance to supply chain performance, which includes the ability to minimise the incidence of delays to inland transport
  • 80% of all container port trade in Melbourne and Sydney moved by road 1.2 million truck visits a year for Melbourne Port of Melbourne where by 2035 the amount of container traffic is expected increase to 8 million twenty-foot equivalents (TEU) quadrupling from 2008 levels. The worrying factor is that Melbourne’s roads are estimated to be only able to handle approximately 4 million TEU
  • Super B Double able to carry 4 TEU
  • Eliminate surplus fuel consumption caused by the stop-start nature of driving in heavy traffic Less visibility

    3. 3. What is the Extended Gateway Concept? <ul><li>The Extended Gateway shifts the primary gateway of the seaport into the hinterland </li></ul><ul><li>Offers efficient connections with the traditional gateways </li></ul><ul><li>Provides a location for value adding alongside integrated multimodal hinterland networks </li></ul><ul><li>( Flanders Institute of Technology 2006) </li></ul>
    4. 4. Role of Port <ul><li>The role of ports has changed </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ports now compete as elements within a supply chain </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hinterland access is the area where ports can create a competitive advantage over their rivals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Movement of containers from the port to the customer make up between 40 to 80% of total container shipping costs </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>( Notteboom & Rodrigue 2005) </li></ul></ul></ul>
    5. 5. Role of Port cont. <ul><ul><ul><li>“ routing choices, and to some extent port choices are strongly dependent on hinterland transport conditions and reliability of the route has become increasingly important to those in the supply chain making the routing decisions” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>(International Transport Forum 2008, p. 8) </li></ul></ul></ul>
    6. 6. Integration with hinterland <ul><ul><li>Ports need to improve and consolidate their supply chain connections by integrating themselves into the chain in both directions linking themselves to their hinterlands </li></ul></ul>(Notteboom 2008)
    7. 7. Extended Gateway <ul><li>Extended Gateways provide ports with an opportunity to further integrate themselves into supply chains by improving hinterland connections and establishing locations that support activities that add value to the freight that passes through them </li></ul>
    8. 8. Value adding <ul><li>Consolidation/Deconsolidation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Building up/Breaking down shipments </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Transloading </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Transloading of maritime units to domestic </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Postponement </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Warehouse-based terminalisation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Light Transformations </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Product and package transformations </li></ul></ul>( Rodrigue, Debrie, Fremont & Gouvernal n.d)
    9. 9. Hinterland connection <ul><li>Improving hinterland connections </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce congestion at the port </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Freight delivered to extended gateway </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Freight consolidated at extended gateway </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Freight transported from extended gateway in loading sequence and just-in-time for transshipment </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Transported during off peak traffic hours </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Maximise vehicle utilisation </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Increase backloading </li></ul></ul></ul>
    10. 10. Hinterland connection cont. <ul><li>Less direct vehicle movements originating from the seaport and a greater use of shuttles linking the seaport to the extended gateways </li></ul>(Sannen 2009)
    11. 15. Emissions & Congestion <ul><li>Reduced port related traffic </li></ul><ul><li>Trade off between reduction of truck miles compared to additional rail or barge miles incurred </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure problem isn’t just shifted to a new location </li></ul><ul><li>Consideration of new technology </li></ul>
