Valencia Port Optimization

Valencia Port Optimized with FLAGSHIP-RTS

FLAGSHIP, a part EU-funded project, has successfully implemented the first real-time optimisation system targeting congestion and logistics scheduling in container terminals. The system, known as FLAGSHIP-RTS was trialled at the Port of Valencia and plans transport resources, container repositioning movements and inventory levels simultaneously, using a real time scheduling model. This allows the terminal operation to be re-optimised dynamically throughout the day enabling both air pollution and congestion to be significantly reduced, as well as generating substantial savings for logistics operators and customers.

FLAGSHIP-RTS has been designed and developed as a management tool for terminal operators, freight forwarders, ship operators and container logistics providers and delivers commercial, environmental and social benefits. Trialled with China Shipping (Spain) and Port of Valencia the reduction in wasted container handling operations in the terminal not only greatly improved efficiency but led to less congestion and increased safety in the terminal.

Trucks and containers did less empty mileage leading to lower CO2 emissions and improving the effective capacity of haulage fleets; reducing both their operating costs and their impact on the environment. FLAGSHIP-RTS also had a positive impact on the area surrounding the terminal reducing noise pollution, easing congestion and speeding up road traffic in the terminal vicinity. The smoother flow of traffic in and out of the terminal allows cranes and handling equipment to be used more efficiently and safely.
