Evaluation of different berthing scenarios in Shahid Rajaee container terminal using discrete-event simulation

Abstract

In this paper a simulation model is developed for evaluation of different berthing scenarios in Shahid Rajaee Container Terminal. Model is trying to handle Berth Allocation and Quay-Crane Assignment Problems simultaneously for more efficient solutions. Validity of developed model is examined by sensitivity analysis on model parameters and after that three berthing scenarios has been put to test in model and obtained results suggests that "Length Based Allocation" berthing scenario can reduce the turnaround time for vessels and also increase completed jobs by berth at a fixed time period.
