Terminal optimization means being more efficient on operating the vessels, trucks and trains. Often this is used in combination with automation which is only partially true. Automation in the industry is usually seen as equipment automation, however being more efficient can start much earlier. Automate part of the planning process and have TOS supported decision taking.
One major planning process on most terminals is the vessel planning process. But only improving the vessel planning process itself, is starting to late becuase be then many important decisions have already been taken: Where to berth? How many cranes? What about other vessels and connections? Where are my loading containers? Etc. This is a complex problem that is to be solved with multiple criteria and different constrains along your quay wall.
So as part of our TOS we have integrated all the factores and use all data inside the system to support the berthing decsion and have a good basis for the vessel planning. The user can go for different scerarios and play and compre these.
