Student Academic Integrity Policy*:  MEC upholds the spirit of academic integrity in all forms of academic work and any form of violation of academic integrity shall invite severe penalty. Any benefit obtained by indulging in the act of violation of academic integrity shall be cancelled.  MEC also reserves the right to notify the appropriate law enforcement authorities of any unlawful activity and to cooperate thereafter in any investigation of such activity.  Faculty can conduct a viva to investigate and ascertain that the work submitted is student’s own work as per the guidelines for the same. A student can be given a maximum of 2 chances to attend the viva in such cases. It is expected that the student attends the viva during the first chance itself unless due to extenuating circumstances. If the student does not attend the viva in spite of being given 2 chances and fails to submit valid reasons, he/she will be awarded a fail in the module and this shall be counted as a case of academic integrity violation. All cases of violation of academic integrity on the part of the student shall fall under any of the below mentioned categories: 1. Plagiarism 2. Malpractice 3. Ghost Writing 4. Collusion 5. Other cases If the student fails a module and has a proven case of academic integrity violation in this module, the student is required to re-register the module. This is applicable to first and second offence of academic integrity violation of plagiarism type MEC_AMO_TEM_035_02 Page 4 of 9 Port Logistics BUSS-B 3002.1 – Fall - 2020 – CW 2 (Assignment) – Session A, B and C – QP 1.1. First Offence of Academic Integrity Violation: 1.1.1. Plagiarism a. If a student is caught first time in an act of academic integrity violation during his/her course of study in any assignment other than project work and if the type of violation is plagiarism, then the student will be allowed to re-submit the assignment once as per the period allowed for re submission However, a penalty of deduction of 25% of the marks obtained for the resubmitted work will be imposed. b. Period of re-submission: The student will have to re-submit the work within one week (5 working days) from the date he or she is advised to re-submit. c. Re-submission of the work beyond the allowed period of resubmission will not be accepted and the assessment will be awarded a zero mark. d. If the re-submitted work (within the allowed period of resubmission) is also found to be plagiarized, then that assessment component will be awarded a zero mark. It shall also contribute to the total count of academic integrity violation for that student. e. If plagiarism is detected in UG Project work (Project 1, Project Planning and Project Design and Implementation), the above clauses do not apply, and the work will be summarily rejected. In these cases the student will be awarded a fail (F) grade and is required to reregister the module. 1.1.2. Malpractice / Ghostwriting / Collusion If a student is caught first time in an act academic integrity violation during his/her course of study for an assessment component irrespective of coursework or end semester and if the type of violation is Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion, then the student shall fail the module. 1.2. Second Offence of Academic Integrity Violation: 1.2.1. Plagiarism a. If any student is caught second time in an act of academic integrity violation during his/her course of study and if the type of violation is plagiarism, then the student will not be allowed to resubmit the work, and s/he will directly be awarded zero for the work in which plagiarism is detected. b. MEC_AMO_TEM_035_02 The student shall also receive a warning of suspension in such cases. Page 5 of 9 Port Logistics BUSS-B 3002.1 – Fall - 2020 – CW 2 (Assignment) – Session A, B and C – QP 1.2.2.

The committee shall investigate the case by means of a viva and/or a hearing of the parties concerned if required and shall take appropriate decision. The penalty that can be granted to a proven case of academic integrity violation which falls in MEC_AMO_TEM_035_02 Page 6 of 9 Port Logistics BUSS-B 3002.1 – Fall - 2020 – CW 2 (Assignment) – Session A, B and C – QP this category of “other cases” can be a warning/component zero/ module fail/suspension/expulsion depending on the nature and gravity of the offence. 1.6. Types/Variations of cases of Plagiarism and associated actions Type 1: In case plagiarism is detected in any component or part submission (submitted at different times) of one assessment (assignment), the deduction in marks will be applicable for the whole assessment (assignment), even if only the component or part submission alone needs to be resubmitted. Type 2: In case plagiarism is detected in a group assessment, all students of the group will be considered as having committed an act of plagiarism irrespective of whether plagiarism is on account of the act of all or a few or only one member. The policy will then be applied to all students. If some students in the group are eligible to re-submit (first offence) and others are not eligible, only eligible students will be allowed to re-submit within a period of one week and the penalty will be applied as per the policy for each student according to his / her history of violations. Type 3: Combination of Type 1 and Type 2: In case plagiarism is detected in any component or part submission (submitted at different times) of a group assessment (assignment), the deduction in marks will be applicable for the whole assessment (assignment), even if only the component or part submission alone needs to be resubmitted. All students of the group would be considered as having committed an act of plagiarism irrespective of whether plagiarism is on account of the act of all or a few or only one member. The policy will then be applied to all the students of the group. If some students in the group are eligible to re-submit (first offence) and others are not eligible, only eligible students will be allowed to re-submit within a period of one week and the penalty will be applied as per the policy for each student according to his / her history of violation. Type 4: Variation of Type 1 and Type 2: In cases where the assessment consists of components or part submissions that could be a group assessment component (e.g. group assignment) and an individual assessment component (e.g. individual reflection), the following will be applicable: a. If plagiarism is detected in the group assessment component, all students of the group will be considered as having committed an act of plagiarism, irrespective of whether plagiarism is on account of the act of all or a few or only one member. The policy will then be applied to all students of the group. In such cases the group assessment component will be resubmitted. If some students in the group are eligible to re-submit (first offence) and others are not eligible, only eligible students will be allowed to re-submit within a period of one week and the penalty will be applied for each student according to his / her history of violation. MEC_AMO_TEM_035_02 Page 7 of 9 Port Logistics BUSS-B 3002.1 – Fall - 2020 – CW 2 (Assignment) – Session A, B and C – QP b. If plagiarism is detected in the individual assessment component, the individual assessment component will be resubmitted - if the student is eligible for resubmission-. The policy will then be applied to that student alone. c. In both cases (a) and/or (b), the deduction in marks will be applicable for the whole assessment (assignment). 1.7. Types/Variation of Cases of Multiple Offences If student is caught with multiple violations of same or different nature in different modules of the same semester, they will be considered as one offence and student will be penalized for each violation according to the type of the offence. If student is caught with multiple violations of same or different nature in the same module of the same semester, then they will be considered as different offences and each will contribute to the overall count of AIV. The student then shall be penalized for each violation according to the count and type of each offence. * For further details Refer to MEC Student Academic Integrity Policy in Student Handbook. 2. Late Submission Regulations: It is the students’ responsibility to check all relevant timelines related to assessments. As per the Assessment Policy at MEC, late submissions are allowed for one week (5 working days) for all UG modules with a penalty. In such cases, a deduction of 5% of the marks obtained for the submitted work shall be imposed for each working day following the last date of submission till the date of actual submission. Assessment documents submitted beyond a period of one week (5 working days) after the last date of submission will not be accepted and will be awarded a zero for that assessment. In cases where the submission has been delayed due to extenuating circumstances, the student may be permitted to submit the work without imposing the late submission policy stated above. The extended period of submission will be one week from the original last date of submission. In such cases, the student is expected to submit the supporting certificates on or before the original last date of submission of the assessment and the decision of extension rests with faculty responsible for the assessment .The late submission policy shall be applied if the student fails to submit the work within one week of the original last date of submission. Students may contact their teachers for clarification on specific details of the submission time if required.

Task 2

2.0 Two types of ports

2.0.1 Inland Ports:

Inland ports: - these ports are built on smaller water bodies, viz. rivers/lakes.
What do they do?
Their purpose is either cargo shipments or for commercial passengers or maybe even for both.
These posts are generally run smoothly as there is reduced rush.
Mandates:
These ports are mostly needed for stocking and dispatching cargo shipments. Since, waters
are shallow, deep docking is not allowed, and only small ferries are allowed. This port
contributes to in-land trade through intermodal transportation (Nebot et al., 2017 166).

Port Logistic 5
2.0.2 Sea Ports:

Sea ports: - these are built along coastlines and sea locations.
What do they do?
These ports can accommodate big ships as well as smaller ones. These are the most common
and major types of ports anywhere around the world and also constitute an important part of
water transport.
Mandates:
These ports mostly are used for commercial shipping activities. Also, the ports can act as
cargo ports for international trade activities, contributing directly to a country's economy as
well as cruise ports for commercial purposes. In a trade route, a seaport also acts as a
refueling provision for ships that are in transit.

2.1 Discussion of how these ports are different from others
The other types on the port include: - fishing ports and warm water ports.
Fishing ports: - Fishing ports, as they engage in fishing, are primarily linked to the industrial
sphere. Fishing activities can also be considered to be a form of recreation. The ports provide
their customers with regulated and disciplined fishing. When fully operational, these are the
greatest revenue-generating ports. Unlike other types of ports, the fishing port has an operating
loophole where fish are available in the area or locality of the port. This port is operational.
These ports are becoming uneconomical in the absence of fish in the vicinity.
Warm Water Ports: - These are the ports where the colder temperature of the water is
preserved. In the case of a warm water port, the greatest benefit is that the water does not
freeze during frosty winters (Meng et al., 2017 200). During the freezing season, it is also

Port Logistic 6
open to working all year round without a temporary shutdown. To a great degree, such ports
help to improve the nation's economy. Such ports play a major role in the economic
development of the area where they are located.

3.0 Container terminal
Container terminals are the facility provided by operators to handle the container movement
from vessel to the shore based logistics or change of mode of transportation. It acts as a nodal
point in multimodal transportation where container gets discharged from one mode and handled
on other mode of transport. These are pretty capital intensive and require a heavy lifting cranes
and machinery to deal with the flow of increase Container traffic around the world.

3.0.1Opportunity and challenges faced by Container terminals around the world

Some ports are advancing rapidly but in the less developed areas of the globe, older technology
is still in use. Unfortunately, for the global shipping industry, it might be several decades before
innovations hit these ports, posing a challenge.

The size of shipping vessels continues to increase, and the creation of mega-ships poses more
challenges in terms of capacity management capabilities for container terminals around the
world. We can have Marco polo (CMA), Tripple E (Maersk), HMM Algeciras, etc. who are
vying for a bigger pie but the terminal operator's capacity to handle bigger and bigger ships is a
minimal and huge cost involved to meet the shipping demand (Le et al., 2020 90)
Technology has helped us to start automating container terminals, thereby reducing dependency
on manual labor and increasing productivity. Now whole terminal operation is going in
automated way and gate in /Gate out process is completely interference free.

With a cut throat competition among the operators to lure shipping line calling on their terminal,
profitability and capital cost recovery posing a great challenge amount the operator. Some of
bigger names in industry are DP World, and APM Terminals. PSA are fighting for the p...
