Merauke: The TF is unloading, but very slowly. The unload order is troops and light equipment, supplies, heavy equipment, then other stuff (oil. etc). There are still a lot of supplies on the TF. You could get the heavy equipment ashore by creating a new TF containing all the craft with supplies and not ordering that TF to unload. This would allow the heavy equipment to move to the top of the queue.
Ndeni: Same, but this TF is a barge TF.
There are a number of features interacting here - not always for the best.
1, Port Damage. There are only 10 port sizes in AE (and WITP). No fractional or partial ports. Port damage is a percentage of damage to the total port. Given this, and normal "truncation" math, a single point of damage will drop a port by one size. I.E. a level 5 port that is 2% damaged calculates to a 4.9 port - but there is no such thing so it becomes level 4. All this is old, old process - probably all the way back to UV.
2. Capacity limits. Ports have cargo capacity handling limits based on their damage-adjusted port size. Port damage is obviously damaged cranes, access roads, handling gear, etc.
3. Docking Limits. Ports have docking limits, expressed in ship tonnage, based on their undamaged port size. Ships can still tie up to damaged piers and quays, even if cargo handling over that pier/quay is reduced due to damage.
4. Auto Docking. TFs about to load or unload will automatically use any available docking capacity of the port. If the entire TF can dock, it will. If not, some portion of the TF can maneuver to/near the piers for unloading. Normally a very good thing.
5. Amphib Bonus. Amphibious TFs that are loading/unloading at smaller friendly ports and are not fully docked will get an amphibious bonus.
Thus: the ports are level one so even one damage point will cut their cargo handling capacity to that of a level zero port. But they can still dock up to 6000 tons of shipping. The LCT TFs are small, so they can dock. The auto docking feature will dock them, so they do not get the amphib bonus. But they will (slowly) unload.
All in all I'd rate this as a boundary interface issue at the far end of the processes. Any adjustment to try and tune for improvement here would create havoc in larger TF/port processes.
Remember, patience is a virtue.
