Accuracy Evaluation of Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax Ships Arrival to the Ports
ABSTRACT: Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax ships works on basis of regular schedule and try keep this schedule as accurate as possible. In same time difficulties during Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax ships voyages like bad weather conditions, waiting time to entry in to port, ship's failures and others, sometime request more time as it was planned initially. Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax ships arrivals in to port evaluation is important not only just for the Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax shipping lines planning but as well it is very important for passengers, transport units (trucks) and port terminals. In this Article are analyzed delay times of Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax ships arrival to port on basis of statistical data and used mathematical models for calculation of the arrival time pass.
