The increase in population, high standards of living and rapid urbanization has led to an increasing demand for food across the globe. The global trade has made it possible to meet this demand by enabling transport of different food products from one part of the world to another. In this trade, refrigerated containers (reefers) play an important...

This paper presents the results of both a qualitative and a quantitative study on
the possibilities for peak shaving the energy demand of ship-to-shore (STS) cranes at container terminals. The objective is to present an energy consumption model that visualizes the energy demand of STS cranes and to show the possibilities for reducing the...

Workload forecasting related to truck arrivals is of essential importance not only for optimal resource allocation but also for encountering delays and bottlenecks in the landside operations of terminals. In order to increase their efficiency, some ports have tried to implement various methods such as Truck Appointment Systems (TAS) but, in...

Although terminal efficiency has been thoroughly studied for deep-sea container ports and terminals, up till now, there has been little scientific literature on the efficiency of inland waterway container terminals (IWTs). This paper therefore focuses on determining and analyzing terminal characteristics that influence efficiency. Our...

Planning tasks in modern, fully automated container terminals require a high awareness of the complex situation, and successful planning strategies. Operational planning includes both strategies of planning and resource management. As planning procedures are not (yet) fully automated, a skilled workforce of planners is needed to conduct the...

This work tackles the problem of controlling operations at an automated container terminal. In the context of large supply chains, there is a growing trend for increasing productivity and economic efficiency. New optimization models and algorithms are provided for scheduling and routing equipment that is moving containers in a quay area,...

For enhancing the performance of automated container terminals, this PhD thesis focuses on improving energy efficiency and implementing more autonomous equipment (e.g., free-ranging AGVs) at the operational level. On the one hand, due to the increased energy price and environmental stress, energy efficiency needs to be improved. On the other...

Seaports are crucial interfaces in global intermodal freight transportation networks. Their complex operations, connectedness to external stakeholders, and increasing volumes of goods to be handled make them vulnerable to internal and external disruptions. Research has shown that disruptions in seaports can cause undesirable ripple effects,...

New ports are mostly constructed on low lying coastal areas or shallow coastal waters. The quay wall and terminal yard are raised to a level well above mean sea level to assure flood safety. The resulting ‘convention-al terminal’ requires large volumes of fill material often dredged from the sea, which is costly. The terminal yard of a ‘polder...

New ports are mostly constructed on low lying coastal areas or in shallow coastal waters. The quay wall and terminal yard are raised to a level well above mean sea level to assure flood safety. The resulting ‘conventional terminal’ requires large volumes of good quality fill material often dredged from the sea, which is costly. The alternative...

Automation in maritime container terminals is gaining momentum as the advantages in terms of total life cycle costs have become apparent in western countries. However, expertise and experience in the design, development and operation of automated terminals is still limited. Many stakeholders or actors are involved in the design process and the...

The increase of global shipping leads to competition between container terminals. In order to meet the demands of the shipping companies (service time < 24h.) innovation is necessary. A new indented berth layout is used at Amsterdam Container Terminals to achieve a berth productivity of 300 moves per hour. Since there is a scarcity of land...

New ports are mostly constructed on low lying coastal land or in shallow coastal waters. The surface level of the land for port facilities is then raised to a level well above the highest water mark. This requires vast volumes of good quality fill material often dredged from the sea. Besides the cost of dredging, there is the environmental...

During the last 60 years, the Port of Rotterdam has grown to be one of the major container ports in the world. The city of Rotterdam has changed from a fishing harbour to a Mainport in the last 600 years. The port facilities including the waterways, terminals and hinterland connections as well as the operating methods and handling techniques,...

The economic importance of accommodating container transport and the increasing demand for container-handling capacity are major triggers for conventional ports to develop container terminals. The port of Vlissingen, located between Rotterdam and Antwerp, is aspiring to gain a position in deep-sea container handling. A relevant factor that...

International transportation is rapidly growing. Even during the recent recession, trade growth percentages world-wide exceeded 5-10%. As a consequence, container handling capacity is rapidly growing as well. Larger vessels, bigger container terminals: it appears to be an on-going process of which the limits have not yet been reached. At the...
