Abstract: The paper demonstrates application of the queuing theory in modelling a port container terminal As a port container terminal is a complex system, it is possible to achieve operational efficiency of the terminal through coordination of particular subsystem capacities, Le determination of optimal terminal capacity accommodation. A port container terminal can be considered as a queuing system defined with basic parameters: the ship or container arrival rate and the ship or container service rate, in an observed time unit. Appropriate indices of port container terminal operations are computed on the basis of these parameters. A model of total ship waiting and berth unoccupancy costs has been established through the introduction of costs as optimization criteria thus facilitating decision-making on optimal capacity of a port container terminal.
