Abstract. This study reviews various planning and control activities in container terminals. Decision-making problems for operation planning and control are defined and new trends in the technological development for each decision-making process are by: Operation and economics of container terminals.

Transportation and production planning of reverse logistics. The research on the operation of port container terminals is systematically examined.

Internal transport operations connect the seaside, yard side, and landside processes at container terminals. This paper presents an in-depth overview of transport operations and the material handling equipment used, highlights current industry trends and developments, and proposes a new classification scheme for transport operations and scientific journal papers published up Cited by: Get this from a library.

Design and Operation of Automated Container Storage Systems. [Nils Kemme] -- The storage yard is the operational and geographical centre of most seaport container terminals. Therefore, it is of particular importance for the. nine-year period, and a cross-sectional dataset for container terminals worldwide.

Net-effect and gross-effect Operation and economics of container terminals. book models are applied to both datasets. Technical, scale and overall efficiencies of individual ports/terminals are evaluated. Operation and investment strategies are examined for selected ports and terminals.

Its contributions are written by leading experts from academia and business and address practitioners and researchers in logistics, transportation, and management.

Ports and Terminals. By nature port planning is a multidisciplinary activity. It involves expertise in the field of transport economics, shipping, nautical matters, safety and logistics, but also knowledge of waves and currents, sediment transport and coastal morphology, dredging and land reclamation, and design of breakwaters and quays.

The reason is the incredible economics of container ships. This includes a paid sponsored promotion which had no part in the writing, editing, or production of the rest of the video. Music by.

Dispatching Automated Guided Vehicles in a Container Terminal On top of the complex navigational and control problems faced in the design of such a system and operation of container terminals. Recent research on AGVs in automated container terminals has mostly involved automation equipment, such as the QC and AGV, or YC scheduling problems.

Reducing the berth time or improving the working efficiency of the QCs is the goal of most research on this topic (Roy et al.,Saini et al.,Roy and Koster, ).Author: Meisu Zhong, Yongsheng Yang, Yasser Dessouky, Octavian Postolache. In a context of global competition, the optimization of logistics systems is inescapable.

Logistics Systems: Design and Optimization falls within this perspective and presents twelve chapters that well illustrate the variety and the complexity of logistics activities. Each chapter is written by.
