Abstract: This paper studies the operations of intermodal barge terminals. The objective is to increase the terminal’s efficiency by supporting the operational planning of the terminal operator. For this purpose a review on general and process specific barge terminal planning problems, discussed in current scientific literature, is provided. This theoretical knowledge is verified in practice by means of a comparison with operational planning realities at Haven Genk, a Belgian trimodal terminal. Finally, a simulation study based on Haven Genk data is performed to investigate whether vessel size and number of vessels in use have an impact on barge terminal efficiency.
