The construction of a container terminal is a large and long-period investment, and its planning and design involve many factors such as technology, economy and social environment. At the same time, the handling system of a container terminal is a complex discrete dynamic system. Therefore, the design of a container terminal is a complex process requiring repeated modification from proposing alternative schemes to evaluating and optimizing schemes. Modelling and simulation technology can realize the evaluation of various schemes and the determination of the optimal scheme without real operation. Therefore, in order to design the handling system of a container terminal systematically and scientifically to reduce cost and risk, this paper first proposes a comprehensive forecast model to forecast the throughput of a container terminal, and puts forward two handling technology schemes. And then, configuration model of key machinery resources is constructed, and detailed schemes are obtained through simulation experiments with the actual data of container terminal A. Finally, economic evaluation is carried out to examine the financial feasibility and economic rationality of the schemes.
