Abstract

The appropriate sizing of storage areas to optimize the management of intermodal transport, the adoption of environment protection systems and the appropriate flow’s regulations inside manoeuvre’s zones can solve many problems encountered today in a intermodal marine terminal. For these reasons the “integrated design” of storage areas for vehicles and containers is considered essential to ensure efficiency and functionality for all harbour-system. So is here proposed a simulative model as a tool for a more correct design of waiting areas by considering the real stochastic conditions of the process of the arrivals. For the sizing of areas for containers in the harbours, it is necessary to report the storage capacity in terms of TEU that can be stored (and handled) in the unit of time, e.g. in one year, with the extension of sites for storage of boxes and furniture with the other specific operating parameters. The sizing of storage areas of the goods date constitutes a delicate problem the frequent shortage of the areas available. The ability to warehouse of the terminal is essentially determined from the interrelation between fixed and static parameters in the short period which the extension of the storage area, the height of the overlapping batteries of container (defined also like number of “shooting”), the means of movements and, at last, a series of parameters that can vary the efficiency’s degree according to of the operatives of the terminal. The optimal level of use is caught up when it is employed approximately the 60-65% of the maximum storage capacity; account is kept, therefore, of a sure tolerance necessary in order to make forehead to eventual peaks of traffic in the periods in which the volume of container in the terminal or advanced to that mean. By use of the Sartor expression (1997), it is possible to find out the capacity of traffic C of a terminal for container in a period of reference (generally one year) and this can be useful in order to define the requirements of areas to assign to the storage.
