Cirrus Logistics provides ports and terminals with applications and services that optimise the vessel call process, increase terminal throughput, and make the best use of available infrastructure and resources.
Jetty and Berth Scheduling; optimisation and simulation applications help manage the efficient flow of vessels through the port. Cirrus supports the scheduler by taking into consideration the maritime, safety, manpower and equipment requirements for each vessel call. KPIs can be monitored and built into the scheduling algorithms to ensure the impact of every vessel movement is understood, enabling waiting times and vessel turnaround times to be reduced.
Terminal and warehousing layout; our spatially aware applications assist in the designing of the terminal layout, warehouses and roadways, helping to minimising congestion and balance resourcing requirements to achieve the desired throughput. Facilities can be quickly designed and modelled, the results and benefits compared and analysed supported by 2D and 3D visualisation.
Cirrus have over 25 years’ experience in developing advanced optimisation and simulation techniques to enable companies to develop the best possible supply chain and maritime operational strategies that return optimum financial benefits.
Cirrus Logistics specialises in developing products that use Applied Modelling Algorithms to efficiently solve design, optimisation and scheduling challenges across the logistics industry. Our products enhance the decision making process through the use of rich 2D & 3D models, high impact graphical analytics, and quick to learn user interfaces.

Cirrus Logistics provides ports and terminals with applications and services that optimise the vessel call process, increase terminal throughput, and make the best use of available infrastructure and resources.This paper has been written to introduce an approach to vessel planning and scheduling that can return million-dollar savings per terminal per year.For supply chains that involve the chartering of vessels, demurrage is seen by many organisations as an inevitability of moving cargoes.
How can OR and algorithms change ports and terminals, a paper that defines the meaning of optimisation
Berth space at terminals is a limited resource, and development of new berth space is expensive, time-consuming and may be limited by natural constraints. Effective berth scheduling allows terminals to maximize utilization of their berth space; therefore, berth scheduling is critical to the overall efficiency of the terminal and the associated supply chain.
