Abstract
The Port of Davisville, located at Quonset Point in Rhode Island, is primarily used for the importation of foreign made automobiles into the eastern US markets. Currently, no shipping container traffic moves through the port; nearly all international container traffic into and out of the region moves through port facilities located outside of the local area. This study examines if the port can be utilized to cost effectively ship containerized cargo in and out of local markets.
