Abstract

In the last decades, the continuous growth of the containerized freight transportation has led to a fast development of container terminals, that, as a consequence, need keeping the handling equipment efficient and tech-nologically advanced. In this framework, the investments for enhancing the handling throughput, and for reducing the management costs, have to be carefully planned. The present paper provides a model for decision support in finding the best kinds, and numbers, of resources via of a global sensitivity analysis approach. In particular, the proposed methodology points out those elements of the handling system whose performance variabilities influence the global performance of the seaport terminal the most.
