Models for berth assignments help to solve logistic problems in container terminals and are important decision making tools. This is particularly so where, because of the system complexity and vessels arrival rate, problems cannot be solved empirically. Another issue concerns potential infrastructure and equipment shortcomings, where high utilization of the existing system components is required. In this paper, the authors focus on draft or depth restrictions that may occur alongside a quay.

The model is tested in the environment both with and without sea-depth limitation alongside a quay. For validation purposes, random vessels arrivals are generated together with their technical particulars.
