In 2000, the port of Busan gets to be jumped as the port which handles the third materials mobilization quantity of container in the world.
In spite of this outward progress, the current of container has been passed through ODCY as like the former days, and thus the expenses of materials distribution payable by the consignee has not been reduced and the intra-urban traffic congestion caused by the transportation vehicles of container has not been improved.
So, the container terminal which has operated the existing marshalling yard gets to introduce On-Dock System which offers the overall service of unloading, keeping and transporting within the container terminal for the purpose of reducing the traffic congestion, making the high added value on the service given by the container terminal , reducing the expenses of materials distribution and improving the service quality toward the customer.
It can be said to be essential which the time required to when the consignee is shipped to the vessel from the door of consignee, and to when it is delivered to the cargo owner after the discharging of cargo makes minimized and thus the expenses makes reduced and also the quality of service is improved.
Therefore, it is expected to be contributed to the reduction of materials distribution expenses between the parties concerned as well as it enhances the competition of container terminal and the consignee and shipping companies can be guaranteed the high-quality-service.
So, the purpose of this study is as shown in the followings.
First, the operational system of existing container terminal will be analysed , centering around the port of Busan.
Secondly, the current conditions of container terminal On-Dock in the port of Busan will be analysed and then will be compared with ODCY system.
Thirdly, the problems of On-Dock System Operation of container terminal in the port of Busan will be analysed in the practical tendency.
Fourthly, the effective improvement way for the operation of container On-Dock System will be suggested.
As the method and scope of this study, I jointly performed the analysis which uses the secondary data and the interview with the person in charge of field together with the literature investigation in order to consider the current conditions of container terminal in Korea and the efficient improving way of On-Dock System.
At first, I arranged the current conditions and function of container terminal in the port of Busan through the existing literature study on the function of port and container terminal and On-Dock system, and jointly executed the meeting with the person in charge of the shipping company which uses On-Dock and the interview with person in charge of field which gives On-Dock Service, and looked for the efficient improving way of On-Dock System based on the problems shown these interviews.
As result of analysing this study, it is the directions of container terminal to be progressed which it offers the optimal On-Dock Service as like the necessity of Network Unification through the rationalization of materials distribution from now on.
The container terminal offers the high-quality service together with the expenses reduction and thus will be able to maximize the satisfaction of shipping company, consignee and transportation company which are the customer. Moreover, the container terminal will have to seek positively the relative marketing strategy which lays stress on the continuous relationship with the major customers and then to be accustomed to the ambient environment of rapidly-changing container terminal.
The container terminal operational way must be sought in the strategic scope together with the stabilized acquisition of materials in order to be existent in the extreme competition with each container terminal.
In order to accomplish the management target as like the effective operation of container terminal, the effective On-Dock System Making will be able to be said as the essential object.
