This paper investigates the feasibility of different logistics solutions, or so-called setups, in a third-generation port. To achieve this, a simulation model imitating the work of a real third- generation port was developed. Four experiments with different logistics setups (the size and number of shipped consignments to the port, dispatching time, deployed truck fleet, etc.). have been configured and evaluated in the simulation model. The research shows that effective material transfer from the plant to the port can be provided, if a pull- system is applied instead of traditional push-system. This approach allows goods to be delivered just-in-time with the minimum costs of labour and material resources.
