Planning & scheduling

Our Dropboard planning & scheduling platform is specifically developed for the port and terminal industry. It is an 

integrated, real-time, web based, multi-user planning & scheduling platform that empowers the planner by:

  • Sharing information with all required stakeholders;

  • Providing the right information at the right time;

  • Action-oriented user feedback;

  • State-of-the-art user experience and software architecture;

  • Including sophisticated machine learning algorithms to predict the future; and

  • Using constraints-based scheduling logic and intelligent free slot finding to find the best jetty allocation.


Dropboard is continuously being developed based on user feedback. Dropboard supports ports and terminals in gaining a better market position by increasing customer satisfaction. Learn more on Dropboard.

Why simulate your terminal?


The design and development of a tank terminal, an extension to an existing tank terminal or optimizing a tank terminal is a big undertaking. Simulation allows for significant cost reduction by avoiding unnecessary expenditures and by increasing operation efficiency.

Simulation is the only way to understand how various resources (berths, storage areas, tanks, handling equipment, quays etc) interact with each other and how they are affected by not manageable factors (weather, breakdowns). This makes simulation modeling an essential tool for the optimization of liquid bulk terminals.

“Dropboard allows us to see what is currently going on, what’s coming - we have live data that shows what is happening during our shift. Dropboard turned our planning easier, more dynamic and with less margin for errors."
