Terminal development projects are strategically important. You face many decisions from conceptual planning and initial ideas to creating first design. We’ll help you answer key questions such as:
1. Objectives and design criteria
Our design approach sets the objectives for the terminal - such as throughput volume, berth productivity and truck turn time.
2. Capacity analysis
Balancing storage versus handling capacity of all components in the terminal equation.
3. Design of system alternatives
Development of layout configurations for the system alternatives under consideration.
4. Assessment of system alternatives
Assessment of most promising alternatives that meet the required terminal performance levels and beyond (i.e. equipment, operational procedures, TOS functionalities etc.)
5. Financial analysis
Cost comparisons of running your operation (i.e. OPEX on labour, energy and maintenance) against the investments (i.e. CAPEX on equipment and IT).
6. Final recommendations
