Work arrangements in container stevedoring

Productivity Commission

Microeconomics from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This study examines selected work arrangements and assesses their implications for the performance of container stevedoring workplaces. The effects on employees and users of stevedoring services are also considered, and impediments to achieving improved work arrangements are analysed. This is the first in a series of research reports requested by the Government on work arrangements in key industries. It is complemented by the Productivity Commission's report, International Benchmarking of the Australian Waterfront, which benchmarks port performance across container, bulk and break bulk trades, and cruise shipping.
