We provide math-based decision support system that you, as a decision maker, can use to generate more profit and improve the processes performances. Whether you are struggling with the formulation of strategic decisions on planning future events or you wish to lend a hand to your staff in making short-time decisions on the execution of operations our tools and our specialist team can help you. ACT Operations Research’ name and brand is already familiar to large organizations of complex processes and large-scale systems. Standing beneath real investments in research, we build best-of-breed “decision support math-technology” which has been proving to stand out competing technologies from global players. We draw out the optimization potential of your operations while unleashing pent-up profit margins by embedding our solutions in your systems. What’s more, with us you refrain from taking unconscious risks as we model the behaviour of your systems imitating the real world ahead you play live with your business decisions. At ACT Operations Research, we strive to make the difference in this ever-increasing innovation demanding world working hard to reach a world’s leading position in advanced decision support systems built on optimization, simulation, forecasting and process control expertise.

Conplex problems and high risks! Use simulation and math optimization to find the best solution.
Ports and Vessels

Maritime ports freight and vessels
Pressures imposed by markets' dynamics, demand volatility, quality vs costs and process flows interdependences require regular in-depth analysis coupled with process adjustments to be tamed.
All these circumstances make it challenging to giving the right answers to all questions. That's why serious aftermaths and relevant economic as well as operational by-products are difficult to predict.


Forecasting, simulation and math optimization

With simulation, math and statistical optimization you can have practical answers while comparing risks and opportunities. These advanced tools can be applied to logistics, transportation, freights and service engineering vertical markets to support decisions, risk management and disaster modeling.



Ports, rails, interports and intermodal and logistics centres (e.g. hubs)

  • Trains and vessels: simulation of loading and unloading operations (e.g. cargo optimization)
  • Loading area management simulation and warehouse services optimization (e.g., layout)
  • Wharf operations simulation (e.g., capacity factor)
  • Rail and intermodal networks simulation
  • Ports: inbound freight scheduling and automated matching with available vehicles/space
  • New processes/procedures pre-execution simulation
  • Emergency and critical situations testing and simulation.

Vessels and maritime transportation

  • Cargo planning and scheduling (e.g., cargo shipping optimization, full ship loads, fixed/flexible multiple cargoes' sizes)
  • Dimensioning and scheduling of time charter fleets (e.g., mixed fleet sizes, inventory routing for single/multiple products)
  • Routes design and optimization (e.g. containers carriage, liner network design)
  • Cargo optimization (e.g. ship loading).
