The article describes why simulation modeling is used by many successful storage terminal companies all over the world. "Weather patterns, delayed arrivals, changing vessel characteristics, equipment performances or the introduction of new clients at the terminal: these are just some of the factors that make terminal operations so complex. Fortunately, there is a way to solve this complexity, as most successful terminal operating companies in the world have found out."
Joost Smits of Systems Navigator published his article "Seeing is believing" in Bunkerspot. The article describes why successful storage terminal companies use simulation modeling for the terminal design, terminal expansion and during operation.
