Transhipment Simulators for Training of Ports´ Personnel

Publikation: Beitrag in FachzeitschriftArtikelBegutachtung


As the transhipment of goods is a major cost factor within multimodal transport there is high potential in optimizing transhipment processes at container terminals and thus to reduce transportation costs. One aspect thereby is to improve efficiency of ports ́ personnel, optionally by using port vehicle simulators for training. The paper ́s aim is to identify the demand for port-transcending vehicle simulator training at container terminals in the Danube Region and to examine the feasibility of its practical implementation. Results suggest high basic interest of container terminals in simulator training. Currently, simulators were mainly operated by crane and reach stacker (simulator) manufacturers. However, caused by the high technical and organizational expenses it is yet not possible or at least not profitable for container terminals itself to offer port-transcending simulator training.
