To study the production optimization of container terminal intuitively and vividly,3D simulation approach is applied to implement the visualization of logistics information and operation of container terminal. Based on the simulation requirements of different business flow,the granularity of the components such as static layout,stevedoring machine,stevedoring object,terminal operation,kinematics calculation,data access,communication interface,graphic rendering and so on is partitioned reasonably;A hierarchy component platform is built to indicate the logic relationship among the objective targets;The main 3D components of container terminal such as shore container crane,gantry crane,container truck and so on are implemented according to COM+ rules. The automatic container terminal of Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry Co.,Ltd. is taken as an example to validate the maneuverability of the component platform and the result shows that the approach can provide practical references for the improvement of container terminal stevedoring process and management level.
