Abstract

In this paper the authors propose a simulation approach to container terminal management to support performance analysis for different scenarios, such as level of demand and alternative configurations. The main activities of a conventional container terminal are characterized. The developed model is calibrated on actual data of different terminals of North-West Italian coast and simulations results allow the analysis of efficacy and efficiency of services provided by terminal operators.
