Abstract

Addresses transhipment port selection from a carrier's perspective through a study of the transhipment decision-making behaviour of large Taiwanese international container carriers. Sets out the background to transhipment port selection, reviews the relevant literature and explains the employment of the analytical hierarchy process technique to determine the importance of various criteria in the transhipment port selection decision-making process. Presents the findings of a study of four major international carriers in Taiwan which examined the importance of a range of criteria affecting transhipment port choice, grouped under four main categories: port basic physical characteristics; port geographical location; port management; and carriers' cost perspective. Demonstrates that the findings are consistent with the feeling of the market on the prevalence of cost as a major criterion from a carrier's perspective.
