    • Abstract:
      This report describes a framework constructed to assist in understanding the long run

      impacts of regulations proposed by the US Coast Guard on domestic marine ports. The

      port impacts considered pertain to cost, time and reliability. These three factors have a

      direct bearing on demand for port services and should therefore be considered as part of

      an assessment of the consequences of proposed regulations. The role of ports in the

      global supply chain is significant and rapidly evolving. Actions taken through

      regulations that affect demand for port services have direct implications for international

      trade and, consequently, the nation’s economic well-being.1 These relationships are the

      subject of this report. As such, it forms part of an effort by the USCG Office of

      Standards Evaluation and Development to enhance the process of performing regulatory

      evaluations, as required by the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB).2

      This framework focuses on the container port sector of the overall port industry. This is

      done to make the analysis more manageable, but also in recognition of the fact that this

      sector has been the principal driver of the changes in ports and, as a result, supply chain

      management, over the last 20 years.
