This research is a study of container terminals in Kaohsiung Harbor and investigates risk management in the loading and unloading of container terminals. The study shows that the top three factors associated with severity of accident risk are: “Moving the crane without raising the lifting arm of the gantry crane, resulting in damage to the pilot’s compartment,” “Transferring containers direct to the trailers,” and, “As a result of climatic factors (typhoons), the facility takes no action to prevent collisions.” The top three factors associated with frequency of accident risk are, “Ships go by and waves cause a declined-body, raised prow or changed slipped cable,” “An overweight container in unbalanced loading causes impact in moving containers,” and “Parking trailers do not keep a distance from gantry crane.” Finally, through the carrying out the department of risk management to draft out the risk strategies. Under the rational cost could help the terminal operator reduce the effect of container terminals which may be caused by the uncertainty of accident risks to ensure security of operations.
