Tag Cloud

The yard planner organizes the allocation of containers in the yard, trying to maximize the performance of the cranes, avoiding interruptions, minimizing dead time in shifting the containers and optimizing the available space. To do this he must take account of the work of all the yard cranes, according to the list of containers from loading and unloading of all ships and trains within or entering at that moment. He must therefore solve scheduling problems using all available data on trains, trucks and ships to load and unload. He/she assigns the position where to place the container making reference to procedural parameters, using computer tools. The result is a work list that shows the operators (shift manager and quay crane operators and square) the order in which to move the individual containers for each crane present in the square and quayside.
