Abstract

The transport of containers on trucks and barges and their handling in terminals currently still offers great potential for optimization. Inefficient communication and planning are major challenges for efficient operations at the port terminal. In particular arrival forecasts and heuristics represent important models for the optimization of container placement what results in more efficient processes at the harbor terminal.
