How are RTG volumes calculated?

ARL RTG Planner imports vessels' ETA/ETD, assigned quay cranes and container volumes, as well as concrete quay crane work queue if planned, and takes into account your yard geometry and driving rules in order to assess the yard impact time for the RTG.

What does it cost?

Each terminal is charged a license fee in accordance with the size of the operations. The license includes one year free support & maintenance, which can be extended at a yearly cost of 15% of the license fee.

Alternatively the RTG Planner can be leased on a yearly plan.
