Scarcity of maritime container terminal (MCT) capacity can become a problem for global supply chains. Bottlenecks limit the capacity of these terminals and should therefore be detected and alleviated. However, there is no structured approach available in literature to mitigate the effects of bottlenecks at MCTs. Therefore, this research...

The brownfield container terminal at the Maasvlakte aims at realizing a zero-emission vehicle fleet to strive for its aim to be zero-emission by 2040. Therefore, the research question is as follows: “What are the consequences for costs and operational performance of implementing mature renewable energy carriers for AGVs at the container...

The International Maritime Organization forecasts that greenhouse gasses produced by ships will increase rapidly in the near future, unless precautions are taken now. This will require all ships to reduce their emissions, especially container vessels which are producing the most emissions. One way of reducing emissions, with existing technology,...

Due to the increase of global containerized trade and container vessel sizes, the necessity of container terminal development is unavoidable. On the other hand, designing a container terminal is a very complex process, and on a concept design phase, a quick assessment for the design alternatives should be done in a limited time, cost, and effort...

The aim of this project was to design a solution for the apron services of KLM that will relieve the ground crew from their physical burden and makes the handling of containers safer. Both with the goal to reduce the chance of getting injured while handling containers. Next to the reduction of injuries, the goal is to improve the efficiency of...

This thesis presents the design of a performance prediction simulation model for an ship-to-shore crane. Current STS crane models do not take new trends in container terminal operations into account like automation. These models do not predict the performance accurately. This can lead to logistical and financial <br/>consequences. Automation...

The IMO has proposed Just-In-Time arrivals and services as one of the short-term solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in maritime shipping. The Just-In-Time concept allows vessels to optimize their speed during the voyage. If a vessel earlier knows at which time it is requested to arrive at the pilot boarding place, the vessel can adapt...

Over the last decades, containerisation became the major way to transport discrete goods replacing a part of general cargo trade and facing the increasing consumer demand of developed and developing world. As a result, container terminals became an important part of a lot of ports worldwide while new technology was developed to encounter the...

Climate change &amp; sea-level rise<br/>It is well-known that the Netherlands is susceptible for sea-level rise. Half of the country is situated below sea level and in an estuary. Previous measures of the Dutch against the threat of inundation have resulted in the closure of estuary branches, decrease in the length of primal flood defences and...

Automated generation of system tests for RESTful APIs has been extensively investigated. Previous investigations use either a white box or a blackbox approach, wherein the quality of the test cases can be assessed on the HTTP response in the prior and also on the results of byte-code analysis in the latter. Both approaches are limited however,...

The size of container ships is constantly growing over recent decades due to a continuous search for economies of scale by shipping lines. The growth of the container ships has necessitated ports to adapt, e.g. by increasing the water depth requirements. Many of the conventional onshore ports cannot receive larger ships without dredging...

Due to a global increase in food consumption and shipping, and regional developments like exploitation of the Vaca Muerta oil field, the port of Bahía Blanca in Argentina sees an opportunity to increase its activities. Therefore, a new container terminal will be constructed in the port of Bahía Blanca that can handle 500,000 TEU per year. This...

This graduation project was part of the studio Heritage &amp; Architecture. The chosen ensemble is located at the Hembrug terrain which forms a green peninsula with buildings of industrial heritage. The terrain used to be the heart of the fortification of the Stelling of Amsterdam and was the base for the Dutch military industry. The Ladder...

The Dutch container glass industry is an energy- and capital-intensive industry which accounts for about 350 kt of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions on an annual basis. The fluctuating energy prices during the past decades as well as the implementation of the European Emission trading scheme (ETS) are pushing towards the deep decarbonisation of...

Nowadays, conceptual breakwater layout design mostly relies on experience and expert judgement, making it complicated to demonstrate that an economic optimum has been reached. This stresses the need to develop a tool that is able to establish the economically most attractive breakwater layout for a certain set of requirements and site-specific...

The design of a container terminal is a process that goes through a number of phases. One of the first is the concept design phase, which is needed to make a first assessment of the project's technical and financial feasibility. This phase is exploratory of nature, because of the early stage in the design cycle and consists of several tasks that...

A nation’s main port is a crucial component that contributes to the economic development of a country. Therefore, the role of the port becomes more critical nowadays. However, due to the existing hub-and-spoke structure of the European multimodal transportation network, polarisation and regionalisation are visible in the network. The increasing...

This study was conducted to address the lack of insight port authorities have in port competitiveness. Within this thesis a data-driven model is presented that allows to assess port competition within a bounded scope. This model is developed from the ground up and programmed in the Python programming language as a stand-alone solution. The model...

In this research we look into the integrated LTL routing and loading problem. A review from previous research shows that this integrated problem is novel. All previous literature that researched into an integrated routing and loading problem focused on the loading and vehicle routing problem (3L-CVRP). Different heuristics have been tested on...
