Read our summary of the seminar
“Inland terminals play a crucial role in many transportation networks. A well performing terminal will have positive impacts on all follow-up knots of the network. Complex situations, however, where timing is crucial can rob any terminal operation of efficiency. Delays or last-minute changes require a constant review and adjustment of handling decisions – from rail to road and from quay to crane. This presentation will answer the following questions:
- How can inland terminals strengthen their position as important network part while at the same time better satisfy their customers’ expectations?
- What can inland terminals learn from maritime terminals like Maasvlakte 2, Netherlands latest and ultra-modern port?
- How can optimization algorithms provide a hands-on approach to improve daily terminal efficiency?”
