TU Dortmund University developed a simulation suite for the Container Terminal Dortmund GmbH seated in the largest inland port in Europe located in Dortmund. This suite focuses on modelling processes, resources and strategies for container terminals and enables to optimize a terminal with simulation. The aim is to optimize the terminal by determining the best mix of operating strategies for crane control, stacking area, handling area and resource management. To achieve this, the current situation of the terminal and different future scenarios for operating the terminal were modelled with the simulation suite.
