Decision Science Forum - Ports & Waterways - 3 May, 2018

Simulation, Planning and Scheduling
Register for DSF

As intercontinental cargo traffic continues to grow, there is need for additional port capacity. Designing expansion projects for ports as well as projects to increase the capacity of access routes, such as the Channel Istanbul, are challenging multidisciplinary activities. Modelling these complex systems plays an important role, as it brings together the expertise in transport-economics, safety, logistics, shipping and nautical matters.

Systems Navigator is keen to launch the world’s first web based platform for modelling ports & waterways, delivering the complete picture on capacity, service level and risk under any future investment scenario.

       Live Meeting | Online Webinar

The online webinar has the same program as the live meeting and is open to anyone who is unable to visit us on the 12th of April in The Netherlands.  Please register for the live meeting or inform us of your interest in the online webinar and learn about simulation, planning, scheduling and digital twin technology.
