Abstract

Transportation services have come to be an increasingly essential part of world trade. Freight shipment movement as a part of the maritime enterprise capabilities very particular traits. For this study, the development of transshipment operations is set in the context of Logistics Indexes of impact. Researches about the outcomes on Port transshipments Operations is particularly untouched. Research will subsidize to the understanding of how Sri Lankan’s Logistics Performance Indexes (LPI) influence the transshipments operations at Colombo Port. Using data gathered from Central Bank Reports, Port Annual Reports, World Bank and Questionnaire survey. There are two-analysis part, (1.) Review of the factors consider building of LPI (2.) Relationship among the transshipment operations. This study will contribute to the issues/challenges, achieving hub status barriers, what are the possible solutions to overcome will discuss, and reviewing too. For this using factor analysis, validity, etc. This research contributes to the understanding of transshipments operations in logistics context. This study will use the data from the year 2007 to 2019, because LPIs also published by World Bank every other in two years. This research will answer the research question on which of Sri Lanka’s LPI has an to the logistics related respondents and Identifying the issues/challenges, logistics association with Colombo Port transshipments operations. Moreover, which LPI have the greatest impact, to what operations enhancements in logistics performance effect on transshipments of Port of Colombo, issues/challenges, and logistics related barriers and possible solutions. The research question is answered using hypotheses, using Pearson’s correlation, regarding Sri Lanka’s Customs, Infrastructure, Logistics quality & Competence, Tracking & Tracing, Timelines and International Shipments. The data analyzed using a linear regression model and the analysis will reveal the influence of the LPIs that are explanatory for Colombo Port transshipments operations. Through the analysis it was found that for transshipments operations, all the hypotheses, except the hypotheses related to Customs and Timelines were excluded from analysis, which means that transshipments operations, there is a linear association with the identified LPIs except for Customs and Timelines.

 

Therefore, the main objective of this research is to identify which LPI and affect the operations at transshipment operations handled at Colombo Port. Other objectives include – Identifying issues in enhancing Transshipment’s operations in port of Colombo, Identifying the LPI indexes related related barriers in order to achieve hub status and possible solutions to overcome these problems.
