Abstract : The forecast was prepared under contract to the Army Corps of Engineers and in cooperation with the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), created to assist in forecast development. The first chapter summarizes the forecasting approach, provides background on recent levels of trade, and presents the baseline, high, and low forecasts for 1985, 1990, 2000 and 2020. The major assumptions and scenarios of future events supporting the forecasts are then summarized for the major cargo groups comprising the Bay Area dry cargo trade. A more complete description of the basis for the forecasts and a review of recent trade for each cargo sector studied is provided in Chapters II through XII.
