Reducing Gate Congestion

Low-investment software changes can help with truck turn-time

What are the most common approaches to addressing the problem of gate congestion? Most common are longer opening hours, more gate lanes, appointment systems, OCR systems, and more container handling equipment inside
the terminal. But, these solutions are large projects that entail more resources and time to implement which means large costs.

In this whitepaper, we discuss some ways to reduce truck turn-time that can be achieved by relatively small changes in the operational processes and how these can be implemented within the Navis Terminal Operating
System N4 or as N4 extensions. Each of these ideas has been implemented at various terminals globally, and we hope that you will find at least one idea that is applicable to your specific situation.
