Container Stacking Dispersion Degree and Truck Configuration Under Double Cycling Process

The new loading and unloading technology of double cycling is beginning to be used in ports, because it can improve the loading and unloading efficiency at container terminal. However, in the published articles, there is no research on the dispersion degree of stacking and the allocation of trucks. This paper first define the dispersion degree, then proposes a evaluation model, which considered comprehensively the ship’s loading and unloading time and the cost of the quay crane, container truck and yard crane. And a simulation model by FlexTerm software is established to simulate a quay crane’s working process with different dispersion degree and truck configuration. Finally the experiment shows that the best dispersion is 1 and the number of trucks is 6 for one quay crane in double cycling process.
