Getting Results

Using Flexsim CT to study a process, end-users can confidently communicate their assumptions, findings, conclusions, and future actions to colleagues, bosses, or clients about how to improve container flow specifically and terminal operations generally. In addition to moving more containers more efficiently and at lower cost, organizations and individuals using simulation gain a greater insight into the system being studied, which consequently helps managers to predict and control a terminal�s operations with greater reliability in the future.

Ease of Use

Flexsim CT is the first commercially available "off-the-shelf" simulation tool for container terminals. Through its simple drag-drop model-building methodology and its integrated 3D environment, Flexsim CT concentrates on making model-building easy, fast and intuitive.

Statistical Outputs

Flexsim CT provides real-time statistics collection of many key performance measures, including:

  • Berth productivity
  • Ship queueing and wait times
  • Crane utilization
  • Truck queueing and wait times
  • Yard content and container dwell times
  • Yard equipment utilization
  • Gate throughput and turn times
