The limited facilities and infrastructure, as well as the natural geographical conditions that do not support at the Port, will likely reduce the performance of the Port so thatthe services provided are not optimal. This study examines how to improve loading and unloading services, especially the need for container loading and unloading equipment needed to support container loading and unloading activities at this time and predictions for the next five years, besides also calculating how wide the stacking yard needed to accommodate the number of containers container coming in Sorong Port in the next five years. This type of research is quantitative with data analysis techniques that are linear regression and calculation of the length of the container dock. From the research results obtained (1) Fulfillment of loading and unloading equipment needs include: a) Quay container crane 1 unit (capacity 20-25 boxes/hour), b) Rubber tired 1 unit (capacity 18-23 boxes/hour), c) Head unit and chassis 4 units, d) Forklift 2 units (capacity of 4 tons and capacity of 2 tons); (2) Construction of a wharf specifically for container ships with a length of 226 meters; (3) Rearrangement of space utilization in the area of ??the stacking field and the process of flow in and out of containers.
