Paper Title
The development of containerization and its incessant expansion comprises alterations and technological advances in container terminals. In the current period of “vastness”, regardless of existing fleet congestion, container companies increasing the intake of containers at the terminals to take advantage from economies of scale and to decrease operating costs. Subsequently, container terminals dealing with the problem of service delay.In dainty of this, this report is concentrating on the optimization of handling operations in the container yard, which is most important and complex area of terminal on which terminal efficiency mainly depends. In precise, it attempts to: (1) determine optimized size of block storage in the container or storage yard; (2) developing the optimized container yard layout, in which it focusses on each aspects individually such as internal trucks traveled distance optimization. In order to challenge these issues, two different analytical models are developed in this report. The first model targeted to evaluate the optimal size of each factor of container yard block. And, second analytical model aims to minimize the total distance travelled by internal trucks during container handling operations to facilitate optimal container yard. Finally, the numerical experiments are described in this report to prove the practicality of the different analytical models developed by concentrating on one aim of increasing the efficiency of container terminal. These can be useful by other researchers, organizers and terminal workers to optimize the container terminal operations, to increase their efficiency rates and to enhance terminal throughput without suffering large investment. Becoming technically efficient, the terminal will be more cost- efficient as well, resulting in the overall optimization of terminal performance.The results of this study describe and prove, how an infidel factor such as block storage capacity, yard layout by considering internal truck performance, etc. can enhance the efficiency of container terminal.
