Abstract: 

Thousands of containers put into and exit from modern container terminals in seaports everyday. Because of increasing usage of containers in international trade and goods transportation, pioneer ports try to improve their productivity by optimum usage of their tools, capabilities, strengths and opportunities. It is important for ports to satisfy economic, social and political objectives in a profitable way. A wide variety of factors affect optimum container operations in sea ports. The basis of this study was ranking of factors and selection of main factors based on Bernardo's decision making method (group multi-attribute by ranking scale), in Bushehr port. Results of this research showed that factors including machinery, building container terminal in Negin Island, containers area, specialized human resources and law and regulation, have more effect in optimum container operation in Bushehr seaport.
