About Container LAB
As a Graduate Intern at ORTEC you will be part of a unique organization and team! With this graduate project, you will be part of ORTEC’s student team in the Container LAB. ORTEC founded the Container LAB together with Rebel, a partner that is specialized in logistics projects for the public/private domain. Our goal is to make the operations at container terminals more efficient, using modern-day insights and techniques using and enriching data. Together with other graduate students, you will work within the same strategic topic, but you will have your own research question and thesis subject. Within this LAB you will have the possibility to brainstorm and discuss with colleagues about the topic and everything that is encompassed in writing a thesis, leading to a thesis with more impact.
The positioning of a container on the yard plays a crucial role in efficient terminal operations. To optimize the positioning of a container on the terminal, certain data is needed. Destination, dwell time and mode of next transport are essential attributes when determining the position of the container, however usually not yet known when the container has to be assigned to a location. By combining historical data with attributes that are known, we can predict an expected value for the unknown attributes of an incoming container, thereby enhancing the positioning of this container on the yard. We call the process of predicting these unknown attributes ‘container profiling’.
This thesis is about container profiling, one of the essential elements to get the positioning on the terminal right. Using a set of historical data, we expect we can predict attributes of newly arriving containers. Your assignment will be to create and train this model.
