This paper presents the design of a simulation model that is being used in a research project to investigate terminal structures for container handling on the planned extension of the Rotterdan port area “Maasvlakte 2”. The research project will use simulation for decision support from the very start of the research until the detailed operational and control studies in future. The model described in this paper is the first simulation model developed for global studies, but it will also be used in future detailed studies. The requirements for modeling, the first results and the future use of the model are highlighted.
