Abstract:

Ship cargo loading profiles for the PALCONTRICON designs and for palletized cargo are developed. Ship storage relationships are examined to determine differences in potential benefit. Using these loading profiles, LKA off-load performance is synthesized by computer simulation for palletized cargo and for two variations of PALCONTRICON discharge. In the second stage, cargo discharge rates and the productivity of ship-to-shore transfer vehicles are examined. Cargo packaging is assessed in terms of its impact on the LKAs level of supply and general unloading performance.
