What kind of tonnage are we talking here? Will you need cranes? Will this be reinforced concrete dock? How long? What are your power requirements? Do you have necessary permits? What major players will be moving goods through?

I would go and check out similar operations nearby, and make notes of what I wanted, some rough drawings, talk to people working with the systems and see which work well and why, and what is problematic....Then hire one of these design companies to work with you, and compare costs of different options, until you find a system that will work well, and is in your budget....

This falls under the heading of, "things you should already know before taking on the job."

Asking total strangers to educate you so that you can then use the work product of said total strangers for personal gain does not seem fair.

And, if the "design" fails, who will you blame?

I'd look at "material transport systems' to see if you can find some ideas to copy.

But, first, you may want to become familiar with, and learn, How to Search the Internet Effectively

I believe you are translating 'cargar' to 'charge'. That is the correct translation if you are charging a battery. I think you mean "load" or 'fill'. In the USA, at least, we load the cargo (carga in Spanish) on a ship, or 'unload' it (descargar). If it is a liquid, we 'fill' the tank, or the opposite 'empty' or 'drain' the tank.

You may also see the term 'offload' for descargar.

Hello Martin.

A dock? Isn't that the sort of project suited for a team of engineers and marine architects? How many disciplines are involved, about twenty? Thirty? Forty?

Hi jasatok, yes, your dock it Callao leaves much to be desired, but your town is a great place, I have been there many times when I was in the Merchant navy, and I spent many a day on the local beach in the hot sun, and in the evening I would frequent the local bars, but your police didn't like people to be on the streets after nine oclock in the evening, so I would end up sleeping over in some dingy bar. But anyway, I hope that you can overcome the problems with building a better dock!

Spencer.
