This paper describes the way of detailed modeling and simulation for a new container-handling concept. The simulation-study is part of the European project 'Improved Port/Ship Interface'. Simulation was asked for at a moment in the project where lots of decisions had to be made yet. Therefor the emphasis of the simulationstudy was on conceptual modeling followed by a programming phase divided over several parties. The simulation supported decision-making, proved the feasibility of the concept and contributed to a detailed cost-calculation.
