Abstract
    To alleviate congestion at the entrance of a Maritime Container Terminal simulation models were used to explore alternative ways of operation. By introducing parallel operations, and rearranging weighing machines, we could obtain higher service levels and less flow time for the trucks. Results were obtained using Arena and proved valid in practice.
