Onderzoek naar configuraties van een containerterminal met een simulatiemodel
voor algemene tweefasige overslag.
Report 91.3.LT.2960, Transport Technology, Logistic Engineering.
In this report a description is given of a simulation model with which the
simulation of transhipment in two phases is possible. The proces at a
container terminal can be seen as a special form of transhipment in two phases.
Based on a container terminal the simulation model is made. With this model it
is easy to compare different lay-outs and decision rules.
Some experiments with different lay-outs made clear that the lay-out affects
the performance of a container terminal. A right choice of the lay-out reduces
the number of expensive carriers. Linking just one carrier to a certain part
of the stack provides a worse performance compared to a situation in which
more than one carrier can operate in a part of the stack.
In general for the transhipment in two phases the conclusion is that linking
just one means of transportation to a part of the stack decreases the
performance. A larger working area for the means of transportation leads to
