Abstract

Port Community Systems (PCS) plays a role in supporting the competitiveness and efficiency of seaports through the reduction in both costs and the time needed for cargo to stay at the port. At seaports, multiple transport providers interact and a transport modal switch may occur. Seaports are therefore especially suited to assist the collaboration between terminals and transport providers. For doing so, a framework for sharing information between partners is needed in order to find transport solutions that can deliver cargo on-time, in a typical win-win situation. In this paper, we discuss a framework for guiding a wise allocation of cargo. The seaport is modeled as a store system, and cargo is categorized according to fixed properties and time varying properties (remaining time until due-time or expiration date). The cooperation is done in real-time and is a step towards synchromodal freight networks. Los Sistemas Comunitarios de Puertos (SCP) desempeñan un papel de apoyo a la competitividad y la eficiencia de los puertos a través de la reducción tanto de los costes operativos como del tiempo necesario que tienen que permanecer los buques en el puerto. En los puertos, múltiples proveedores de transporte interactúan y pueden ocurrir cambios en los modos de transporte. Por lo tanto, los puertos son especialmente adecuados para ayudar a la colaboración entre las terminales y los proveedores de transporte. Para ello, se necesita un marco para compartir información entre los colaboradores a fin de encontrar soluciones de transporte para que puedan entregar la carga a tiempo, en una situación típica en la que todos salen ganando. En este documento, se presenta un marco que sirva de orientación para una adecuada asignación de la carga. El puerto marítimo se modela como un sistema de almacenamiento, y la carga se clasifica de acuerdo con propiedades fijas y propiedades variables en el tiempo (tiempo restante hasta el plazo señalado o la fecha de vencimiento). La cooperación se realiza en tiempo real y es un paso hacia las redes de transporte de mercancías sincromodal.
