Abstract:

The simulation model characterizes the operations of a cargo terminal that loads cargo into ocean going containers it is oriented toward container freight stations operated by the Military Traffic Management Command MTMC. General input data to the model include cargo arrivals, container vessel arrivals, container booking parameters, stuffing parameters and policies, and container types and availabilities. General outputs include cargo age, container utilization, and consignee cargo mixing statistics. Included is a description of data collection procedures and a description of how the simulation model was used to measure tradeoffs among container stuffing performance measures, assess impacts of alternative container sizes, and evaluate optimal stuffing procedures.
