The master plan is a key factor in designing new plants, logistics centers or ports. The port is an interface for waterway, road, and railroad traffic. The development of port operations requires an extensive knowledge of the port’s operating environment, port economy and transportation technology. Due to large investments, the port or a terminal has to have a regularly updated master plan, covering phased development and investment plans. The master plan serves as an overall project plan for such industrial sites. It is a long term plan also regarding the future development and investment needs of the site.
