Paper Title:
Generating Scenarios for Simulation Modeling of Container Ship Arrivals
  Abstract

To provide effective strategies for the increasing traffic and future terminal development, in investigating ways in which terminals can improve the capacity and efficiency, this paper outlines a generic simulation model in scenario of experiments for a given terminal on the software of Witness, which can be adapted by some specific terminal. The aim of this model is to measure the terminal capacity and service quality in scenarios of changed inter arrival times and different arrival schedules. It is a tool for measuring and improving the efficiency of terminal with given ship arrival scenarios, which can provide a useful guide for terminal decision-makers and operators.
