MSc thesis for optimization of freight terminal flows at DFDS A/S

A ferry terminal showcase a symphony of movements of tugs loading, discharging and moving cargo around the terminal.
We are looking for students to analyze the current flows and via mathematical optimization and/or simulation find strategies that could enhance the routes, sequences and parking locations.
Optimizing the operational efficiency of terminal operations is an important area for us. The potential is two fold, reducing the time spend in operations and lowering fuel consumption for the greater good of our planet. 
This thesis work will be executed in close collaboration with one of our ferry terminals and with support from domain experts from both the terminal and our HQ in Copenhagen. 
We will be present at the Project & Thesis Market på ITU on 8th September. Come and discuss this or any other other ideas!
