    The escalating demand on container transportation necessitates an efficient container management system to manage daily operations. Perpetual advances in this sector enables us to enhance the overall performance measures such as resource utilisation, time-wastage including waiting and idle times is crucial incapability to manage a vast number of containers effectively. Moreover, such improvements can eventually overcome ground barriers in construction site operations such as resource allocation and synchronisation by providing the transported construction materials. In this on-going project, container management issues are addressed. Additionally, a Monte Carlo simulation model is developed to analyse different resource interactions within the system inability to identify feasible schedules for resources in container terminals.
