Context :

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.

Problem :

– 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
