How Port Kembla Coal Terminal
increased berth utilization by 8%

Coal is delivered to Port Kembla via road and rail, and stored in a stockyard on-site until the cargo is assembled, reclaimed and taken by conveyor to waiting ships. In 2009, 226 ships bound for ports in Asia, India and Europe transported over 13.2 million tons of coal and almost 400,000 tons of coke.

The DELMIA Quintiq solution maximizes the throughput of the terminal by increasing the utilization of its stockyard, machinery and other critical port assets. It also improves the planning process by automating many of its functions, shifting PKCT's embedded knowledge to the planning solution, and providing expert decision support.

We believe we’ve got about in the order of 10% greater utilization of the stockyard, reducing bottlenecks on the inbound and outbound too, and therefore increasing throughput.
