Intermodal Transshipment

Simulation model of intermodal transshipment operations between the ports of Balboa, Manzanillo and Cristobal

Description

Ocean carriers find a strategic advantage by using Panama as a transshipment hub. A clear advantage of transshipment in Panama is the consolidation and deconsolidation of cargo while ships maintain their service routes. If used adequately, shipping companies may find reductions in their transportation costs by exploiting this transshipment advantage. The goal of this project is understanding Panama's intermodal system and simulate it in order to facilitate its further analysis.

Main objective

Create a simulation model that will resemble as much as possible the operations of the intermodal system under study.


Aircraft Schedule Recovery

David Young
Description

Spare aircrafts are necessary costly assets used by airlines to recover from disruptions in their schedule. The goal of this project is to understand the spare usage process, and determine the number of spares an airline requires to achieve its operational goals.

Objectives
  • Understand airlines' network and operations.
  • Document and suggest a standardize process that best replicates the decision criteria for spare usage.
  • Design, develop and test a model that simulates the decision making process.
