This project is associated with the LouisianaState University (LSU) partnership with theRegional Southwest University TransportationCenter (SWUTC). The SWUTC is a UniversityTransportation Center housed at Texas A&Mfunded by the Research and InnovativeTechnology Administration (RITA) of the U.S.Department of Transportation (DOT).Since their introduction in the 1950s, the use of containers now represents roughly 90% of world trade. Their acceptance as the common denominator in international shipping has hadprofound impacts throughout the shipping industry. More recently, two new impacts of containers are being felt: (1) signi
cantly larger vessels, called “mega” ships with capacity of 12,500+TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) and a draft of 50 ft. are now deployed on main tradelanes; and (2) terminals are being redesigned and reequipped to serve these ships, requiringdeeper berths and larger cranes. The pending 2015 expansion of the Panama Canal will acceleratethese two trends. Their impact on the U.S. Gulf Coast ports is the main concern of this study.
