Studies of observed berth occupancy patterns at commercial marine terminals have been made for many United States ports; method for predicting maximum berth occupancy has been developed based on Poisson Law of Random Distribution; it is found that maximum practical berth occupancy ranges from 29% for 1-berth terminal to 66% at 15-berth terminal.
