Container terminal includes logistics activities that are needed to processing of containers considering cost, time and environmental issues. This makes terminal management problems important. These problems aim to decide the efficient planning of the terminals considering the cost and time minimization. Terminal operations include the movement of the full and empty containers between gateways of the terminals and berths by transport modes. Cranes and trucks are used in the study for the transportation. In this study, management of container processes problem has been proposed. The problem aims to perform the movement of the containers at the terminal efficiently. A simulation modelling approach has been proposed and solved by Arena software.
