The port of Casablanca is a multi-purpose port where several types of goods are processed, which generates a multitude of flows within the port enclosure and a complexity of monitoring and global traceability of these flows. Thus, a large number of trucks transit every day, up to 11,000 trucks.
The optimization of these flows is a major priority for the port authority as well as the port actors concerned.
– The existence of saturation in certain time slots during the day;
– The underutilization of certain shifts for the passage of trucks at the port;
– Congestion of certain areas at the port;
– Parking on the lanes inside the port;
– The existence of large flows in front of the weighing and scanners;
– Flow traceability is not exhaustive and does not cover all processes;
– Difficulty of ensuring real-time monitoring of truck flows inside the port;
– Environmental and safety impact;
– A very limited remedy for the transit of goods by rail;
How to optimize the flow of trucks in the ports? How to locate port congestion? What are the criteria for detecting and anticipating congestion?
Issues and objectives:
- Fluidification of access and circulation within the port area;
- Anticipation and planning of transit operations;
- End-to-end process coverage and traceability;
- Optimization of the use of time slots;
- A mastery of flows;
- Anticipation of handling operations;
- Time savings for carriers and terminal operators;
- Reduction of logistics costs
