The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has as one of its goals the extension of trade between developed and developing countries, the vast majority of which trade is carried by sea. UNCTAD is involved in guiding port development, with the object of reducing the port contribution to the costs of maritime transport. A computer model was developed, capable of simulating all the operations involved in the arrival and berthing of ships and the movements of cargo between ships' holds and inland transport. Validation of this simulation model was carried out by using historical data from the port of Casablanca.
