Specific characteristics of the ship and port services as aspects of maritime management
Mimo Drašković, 2016, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: Several ship and port services have been considered, along with their specific characteristics and in the context of their place and role in the entire maritime transport management. A general analysis has been conducted and classification of services of the maritime transport has been done. The specific components and features of the functioning of enterprises of maritime transport services and management of their respective departments and transport stages of sea shipping have been described. A detailed description and substantiation of several levels of management that perform certain specific tasks in the logistics customer service in marine transportation has been given. Some features of the production and service management in seaports have been identified and discussed. A detailed analysis has been provided in terms of modern logistical approaches to customer service of freight trans- port service in general and marine cargo transport services, in particular. The major starting point hypothesis has been confirmed that the quality of services plays a dominant role in the competitive transport environment. The results for a particular seaport and maritime transportation organisations have been determined by the quality of services. In the context of rapid and continuous development of the service sector and its growing contribution to the gross domestic product, the consideration of the ship and maritime transport services is very important, especially for the maritime coastal countries, because they generate extraordinary possibilities for increasing employment, raising competitiveness and the economy of countries and development of their territories. In addition, quality maritime and port services make part of the modern transnational logistic network.

Synergies between an observed port and a logistic company
Dejan Dragan, Bojan Rosi, Toni Avžner, 2017, original scientific article

Abstract: The paper addresses an analysis of potential synergies in collaboration between an observed Port in the Mediterranean Sea and Central-European logistic railway-services based company. Both companies have established a strategic partnership. The main motive was cooperation in rail transport, with a particular emphasis on potential synergies that would a rail traffic have brought to a port's business. For the purpose of synergies valuation under uncertain conditions, a Monte Carlo simulation-based framework with integrated discounted cash flow (DCF) model is applied. The possible values of future synergies are calculated via the DCF model by simultaneously changing values of different uncertain financial parameters at each repetition of a Monte Carlo scenario-playing mechanism. In this process, predicted forecasts of future synergetic throughputs are also used for various types of observed cargo. As it turned out, the generated synergies' values follow the approximate normal distribution. Based on statistical inference and analysis of probability intervals it was discovered that there might indeed exist certain important synergies in the collaboration between both companies. This fact has convinced us into a belief in the correctness of companies' decision to enter into such kind of strategic cooperation.
Keywords: port economics, financial management, valuation, discounted cash-flow model, Monte Carlo simulation, logistics

Slewing port jib cranes
Boris Visočnik, Stojan Kravanja, 2002, review article

Abstract: The paper presents slewing port cranes with a luffing jib. The advantages of slewing port jib cranes are high lifting capacities, high speeds of re-loading and excellent mobility since they are capable of load lifting, travelling, luffing and slewing. The paper gives a detailed description of their characteristics such as the highest reached load-carrying capacities, speeds of motion and accelerations. It also presents the crane assembly, driving mechanisms, loads and load cases, transport by ships and testing of lifting capacity. As a practical example, the paper presents the slewing port jib crane with the capacity of 25/15/5 t at a 27/37/40 m radius made by the Slovenian companyMetalna Maribor for the shipyard 3. Maj, Rijeka, Croatia.

Port hinterland modelling based on port choice
Tomaž Kramberger, Bojan Rupnik, Gregor Štrubelj, Klemen Prah, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: This paper presents a new approach for hinterland modelling based on the results of port choice modelling. The paper follows the idea that the shippers' port choice is a trade-off between various objective and subjective factors. The presented model tackles the problem by applying the AHP method in order to obtain ports' preference rates based on subjective factors, and combine them with objective factors, which include port operation costs, sailing times, and land transport costs using MILP. The ports' hinterlands are modelled by finding the optimal port of choice for different locations across Europe and merging the identical results. The model can be used in order to produce captive hinterland of ports and can also be exploited in order to analyse how changes in the traffic infrastructure influence the size of hinterlands.
Keywords: port hinterland modelling, captive hinterland, contestable hinterland, ports, MILP, GIS, objective and subjective factors

Povezava virtualnega krmilja z elektro-pnevmatskim transportnim sistemom
Tomaž Rodošek, 2016, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: Procesna avtomatizacija, doba v kateri se nahajamo, omogoča zelo visok standard kvalitetne izdelave, boljšo organizacijo in večjo produktivnost. Zato bi radi preverili učinkovitost različnih načinov vodenja elektro-pnevmatskega transportnega sistema. V večini vodenje poteka s pomočjo programirljivih logičnih krmilnikov – PLK. V diplomski nalogi so predstavljeni in analizirani načini virtualnega vodenja, kjer nam software Fluid Sim opravlja delo vodenja in vizualizacije. Preverili bomo tudi zanesljivost in uporabniški vmesnik računalniškega programa KEPserver OPC, ki skrbi za komunikacijo virtualnega krmilnika z ožičenim delom elektro-pnevmatskega transportnega sistema.
Keywords: Fluid sim, elektropnevmatski sistem, Easy port, S7 200, S7 1200

Traffic modelling and performance evaluation in the Kotor cruise port
Davorin Kofjač, Maja Škurić, Branislav Dragović, Andrej Škraba, 2013, original scientific article

Abstract: Simulation modelling of traffic in the Kotor cruise port is used for performance evaluation and optimization of the operational policy. During the summer, the traffic intensity of the cruise shipsŽ arrivals is higher than in other periods of the year. The increased traffic intensity causes congestion at anchorages, which can lead to significant dissatisfaction of the cruise ship operators and passengers. The simulation model, based on the port callingfrequency statistics and port tariff charges, is developed. First, the simulation model is validated against the real data. Second, several simulations are performed, where the scenarios of an extended main berth and of increased traffic intensity are evaluated in order to minimize congestion and to maximize revenue. Simulation results indicate significant queue reductions and a higher revenue, thus justifying the intention in the main berth extension.
Keywords: traffic modelling, port revenue, operational policy, simulation, model validation, Kotor cruise port
