Hinterland terminals enable the transshipment of containers between various modes of transport and play a significant role in intermodal freight transportation. In this paper we present a simulation-based tool, that can be used to plan and design a rail-road container terminal, by simulating different terminal configuration in advance and accessing performance and utilization limits of the planned terminal.
