Traffic Flow

We utilise Simio software to simulate the Material Flow Schedule (MFS) of products entering and leaving a port, including the movement of vehicles  and materials into and out of a port.  By applying Traffic Management rules on Traffic Flows, we can simulate the capacity of road and rail networks into a port to identify potential bottlenecks and risks, as well as evaluating the impact these activities have on a ship’s Total Time in Port (TTIP).  By utilising these tools, MLA can also undertake scenario analysis on traffic management options and expansion plans to determine the effect on the port’s operational capacity.
