Functions OF A Dry Port (ICD)

The functions and the concept of  Dry Ports are better understood by understanding the function of  a Sea Port. At Sea Port, the import cargo of the region is received by incoming ships, the ship is berthed and unloaded, the cargo is segregated for each consignee and stored awaiting customs clearance and delivery. Similarly the export cargoes from the region are aggregated, costumes and other formalities observed and completed and the goods are finally loaded on the appropriate outward bound vessels.  Other admin and customer facilities with proper transport activities are also done in Sea Port.
The Dry Ports perform similar functions. But they receive import cargoes and dispatch export cargoes from or to Sea Port by proper Unit Rail connected to Sea Port. All documentation is done at Dry Port and transport to and from the Sea Port is organised. You can say "A Dry Port is a port provide all the facilities of a sea port at the place far away from sea port."
You may understand the concept and activities of a Dry Port by this slide shows.

Importance of Trade Volume for planning a Dry Port

Dry ports depends essentially on the external trade traffic of the countries in which they are setup.While planning a dry port, therefore the first consideration would be the trade volumes, both inwards and outwards means imports and exports both. once these are decided, detailed breakdown of import and export volumes in every terms would be most useful parameters to outline the necessary facilities that need to be provide in terms of terminal handling, storage and transport.the next step is that panning team have to determine the commodity and its volume that may move from the dry port. during the course of survey it was found that most governments of land-locked countries bring out annual statistics of external trade in terms of commodities and values.The common problem encounter is the paucity of current data regarding the every aspects of commodities trade which could help establish the requirements of transport, handling and storage at the dry port.

It was learnt that basic document used for these statistics is the custom.
declaration failed at the border or at the check point and this contained the
information on the weight of consignment. There is no other practical difficulties in compiling the
weight of commodities imported and exported.
As in all developing countries, the pattern of trade in the land-locked countries consists
predominantly of exports of primary commodities and semi manufactured goods and import of
finished products.
The important fact to consider will be the separate requirements of commodities and their volumes
both for imports and exports that have to be catered for at the dry port. The facilities and their size
would have to be determined accordingly.

Models in Logistics Management

Various quantitative models from the Operation Research Literature can be used to address the decision areas in Logistics.
Location models:- These models help in planning the optimal location of plant or warehouses, considering the inbound and outbound transportation costs and infrastructure cost at the locations. 
  • Allocation models:- These models help in optimally allocating commodities from sources to destinations in a multiple sources, multi destination environment. The costs consider for optimization are the production cost, transportation cost and warehousing.
  • Distribution network design models:- These models are usually comprehensive in nature deciding between a two, three or even four stage distribution network, location of warehouses and break bulk points and sometimes even the transport mode choice.
  • Inventory models:- Inventory models play a key role in Logistics Management. The inventories that are directly affected due to outbound logistics are 
  1. Finished Goods Inventory
  2. Pipeline Inventory
  3. Warehousing Inventory
  4. Retail Inventory
The typical cost trade-offs between inventory and other decisions in Logistics would be
  1. Inventory vs Transportation Costs
  2. Inventory vs Stock out Costs
  3. Inventory vs Spoilage and Materials Handling Costs
  • Routing models:- These models allow optimal routing on a transportation network from a given source to a destination. The simplest model is scales the Shortest Path Problem.
