Economics of Deep Draft Navigation Analysis

Instructor Purpose of InstructionObjectiveOutline of Topic AgendaPurposeTo provide an overview of the maritime system as well as the requirements and procedures for conducting deep-draft navigation economic analyses in accordance with standards and guidance as applied by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).Student Learning Objectives:

Become familiar with the Maritime Transportation System and TerminologyIdentify the General Concepts and Procedural Steps for Economic Analysis Applied to the Study of Deep-Draft Waterway Improvements Under National Economic Development (NED) Criteria.

Identify primary sources of guidance and data and exposure to some of the general terminology applied for studies.The role of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers with respect to navigation is to provide safe, reliable, and efficient waterborne transportation systems (channels, harbors, and waterways) for movement of commerce, national security needs, and recreation. The Corps accomplishes this mission through a combination of capital improvements and the operation and maintenance of existing projects.-ER 1105-2-100Federal Involvement Why?The Federal Interest is established by the Constitution Commerce ClauseProvides means of commercial transportationIs part of national defense

The merits of Civil Works projects for improvement of navigation are currently measured against a single Federal objective--national economic development.Corps Involvement So How Did the Corps Get Involved?Gallatins 1808 report to Congress on waterways, canals and roads

Congressionally directed in 1824 to remove snags from Ohio & Mississippi Rivers

The Corps mission is considered to have begun in 1824 when funds were appropriated to clear snags from Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. The Corps participates financially in general navigation features and special navigation programs only; all other features and facilities (e.g., piers) are non-Federal responsibilities.U.S. Ports: Vital to Tradeand to Our National EconomyMillionTonsOver 10050 - 10025 - 5010 - 25HoustonCorpus ChristiS.

Deep-Draft Navigation System: System of independent channels that serve individual ports. For Corps purposes, these channels are in excess of 14-feet deep, and are found in coastal waters, bays, major rivers and the Great Lakes.Deep-Draft Commercial Vessels: Ships and ocean-going tows.Harbors: Water Area partially enclosed to provide safe and suitable accommodation for vessels.Port: A sheltered harbor where marine terminal facilities are provided.Terminal Facilities: Part of a port or harbor which provides docking, cargo-handling, and storage facilities

Some TriviaState of _______ has deep draft port facilities on 4 Great Lakes.__________ &_________ have ports along the Great Lakes and the Atlantic Coast.The deep-water port farthest from the sea is ______________ (at miles 168 to 255 up the Mississippi River)On the West Coast, ________&__________ operate the largest # of container cranes (80)On the East Coast, ________&__________ operate the largest # of container cranes (50)State of Michigan has deep draft port facilities on 4 Great Lakes.Pennsylvania & New York have ports along the Great Lakes and the Atlantic Coast.The deep-water port farthest from the sea is Baton Rouge (at miles 168 to 255 up the Mississippi River)On the West Coast, Long Beach & Los Angeles operate the largest # of container cranes (80)On the East Coast, New York & New Jersey operate the largest # of container cranes (50)Issues in Economics of Container Ship Driven Channel Deepening BackgroundThe Corps experience in many Districtshas mostly been for bulk cargo.Bulk cargo ships generally have a simple itinerary, back and forth between only 2 portsAll economic analyses by the Corps of ports for containers have been done with homegrown spreadsheets, unique for each application, some of them developed by consultants.What is Different about Container Traffic?They have a scheduled itinerary calling at multiple portsPort rotations dynamicVessels on rotation dynamicServices at any port are complex with multiple rotations

Container Ship Operations & LoadingsContainer ship cargo is diverse so that the draft a vessel needs to call at a port is variable from trip to tripWhat a ship can carry depends on the number of container slots, design draft, the weight of the cargo, and other factorsSome containers are empty meeting need to be repositioned to the exporting ports (see return route of previous slide)Container PosersSailing drafts almost always significantly less than design drafts even in the deepest ports around the
