Skills and Experience

  • University degree in Operations Research, Mathematical Science, Econometrics, Logistics or Engineering or similar is required 
  • Demonstrable strong analytical skills 
  • A keen interest in the logistics domain and container terminal operations 
  • Ability to collaborate within an international and diverse team

Key Responsibilities

  • You will assist the container terminals in understanding their improvement potential and guide them implementing the changes with a team from TBA. This is a challenging and gratifying process as the effect of the changes are clearly shown in the KPIs.  
  • Your day-to-day work will both involve pro-actively understanding relevant material and delivering sub-parts for client reports based on analysis of operational data and KPIs graphs such as productivity and efficiency.
  • You will validate and configure emulation models of existing and future container terminals, both visually and quantitively based on the instructions of more experienced experts. The emulation model is a digital twin in which we can test real software or future (yard) strategies and guide the container terminal during go-live or changes.
