Analysis of Performance in Container Handling Operation by Using Fuzzy TOPSIS Method
Now days the performance charter of most ports of the world is based on increasing the outcomes of L/U
operation, the attempt to measure and analyze the status of such operations through appropriate modern
methods is necessary. Aimed to analysis of Performance in Container Handling Operation in the BIK
container terminal, the present research has been implemented by use of fuzzy TOPSIS method. The
obtained results via FUZZY TOPSIS for BIK container terminal show that Opening and closing the
container lashing, Defectiveness of horizontal L/U equipment, Defectiveness of vertical onshore
transportation equipment, Unpreparedness of ship, Unpreparedness of contractor, were detected as the
most important causes of delay creation in the BIK container terminal L/U operation, respectively.
Key words: Container Transportation, Marine terminal, BIK, FUZZY, L/U operation, MCDM.
