Well advised right from the beginning

Our CHESSCON Terminal Designer Kit supports the design phase of a terminal in different phases. Besides investment and operational costs the efficiency as well as the sustainability of the terminal will be analysed.

Our CHESSCON Terminal Designer Kit

Port and terminal design and feasibility

Starting with CHESSCON Terminal View your first idea of a greenfield terminal or a terminal expansion will be demonstrated within few hours in a 3D-Model according to your specifications.

CHESSCON Capacity allows in the next step to evaluate terminal's capacity (seaside, yard and hinterland connection) according to area's dimensions and the proposed vessel mix arriving.

CHESSCON Simulation provides an overall terminal simulation to find the best layout option and operation system, to evaluate the required equipment fleet and answers first questions on terminal strategies.

All products are developed to be used by the terminal planner or operator himself. Of course our experts will support you in all phases in the way you ask us to do. Typically we start the project together and more and more you take over the control, which reduces external costs and thus guarantees cost control.

Besides the CESSCON Designer Kit we also provide simulation tools for supporting gateway or hinterland ports to have the right view on the hinterland connection. Our tools can analyse the traffic flow and support the right decisions during design phase on gate setup, rail or CFS facilities.
