    Future port operations - new research challenges

    • Iris Vis, presenter,

    Worldwide, container terminal operators continuously work on improving operational processes to increase efficiency and to remain competitive. More and more massive volumes of containers arrive at the same time in ports requiring the design of new technologies and tools to ensure an efficient unloading and loading process of vessels. In this keynote, an overview of operations in container terminals will be presented. Models and solution approaches will be shown for a variety of decision problems occurring at the berth, storage yard and international transportation processes. A discussion on new avenues for academic research based on current trends and technological developments will be provided.
