The purpose of this research is to analyze the impact of instituting automated storage and retrieval systems on the operations of a prototype maritime container terminal. A 3D simulation model is developed to measure the effectiveness of the proposed total system and compare it with existing practices. Three performance analysis variables are defined for this comparison. These key variables are (1) throughput, (2) space utilization, and (3) horizontal material handling equipment utilization. The basic model is generic in nature, however, its details are on the basis of a prototype terminal in the combined ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles.
