Port operations management is effected by three channels. The higher channel controls port operations as a whole and includes the operations, commerce, shipping, planning, labour and wages, mechanization, technology, personnel, accounts, administrative, harbour master’s and other functional services / departments. The port is headed by the general director who controls the entire port operations. Each department / service is managed by the department head. There are also some deputy general directors. Thus, the deputy general director operational is responsible for the operations, commerce and shipping departments. Safety of shipping and proper order in the port is the responsibility of the harbour master who is a deputy general director at the same time.

The middle channel of management controls cargo handling complexes and other production units of the port, such as port auxiliary service fleet, depots for motor and electric lift trucks, railway and motor cars, etc., repair and maintenance shops, rigging shops and others. The main production units of the port are cargo handling complexes where all loading / unloading operations are carried out. The complexes specialize in handling specific types of cargoes (general cargo, timber, ore, coal, containers, etc.) and in servicing cargo traffic routes. Each cargo, handling complex compromises terminals, complex stevedore gangs, traffic control service, warehouse and open storage personnel, and is headed by the superintendent. The lower channel of the management is involved in a direct control of cargo handling operations on berths and in warehouses. This control is affected by chief stevedores, warehouse superintendents and stevedore gang foremen.
