Abstract:

This thesis explains various analytical techniques used during research work on the containerized export cargo transportation system at the Military Ocean Terminal, Bay Area, Oakland, California MOTBA. A series of six computer programs were written in order to summarize data for a distribution audit, while another two programs summarized the data generated from a container stuffing simulation model. Results show that the average age of cargo at stuff is determined by a combination of variables, each of whose significance is related to the degree of activity at the container stuffing station for an individual POD or consignee.
