Terminal Planning

Terminal Planning

Visy assists ports and terminal operators in planning automated gate operation. Our planning capabilities include 2D and 3D layouts, 3D animations, concept studies and gate simulations.

Our gate simulation tool allows us to optimize automated gate operation using terminal’s own traffic data, planned gate process and dimensions. Simulation reports are made based on road truck gate phase and turnaround times including queue sizes in each gate phase. Simulation video is provided for verification of the gate process and additional clarity (reasons for bottlenecks etc.).

terminal planning

2D and 3D layouts

  • Based on available area
  • With optimal dimensioning
  • Planned gate process
  • Layout can be optimized via simulation

3D animations

  • Based on the 3D layout
  • Visualization of the planned gate process for easier understanding

Concept studies

  • Description of existing operations
  • Development needs
  • Proposed solution with pictures
  • Cost and delivery time estimates
  • Estimated benefits

Gate simulations

  • Evaluating benefits of an automated gate system vs manual operation
  • Checking functionality of the proposed gate solution and if it meets KPI requirements (Excel reports)
  • Find out optimum gate design
  • Illustrate process in an automated gate system (via 3D animation)
