Containership Loading Management System
When loading a containership each crane must be provided with a continuous
supply of containers so that the process is done in the least amount
of time possible. Over this issue, maritime shippers are particularly
demanding since they have tight schedules to accommodate along their
pendulum routes in addition to their customers counting on timely deliveries
of their orders. Containers must also be loaded in the right order.
