Abstract: The number of container boxes handled at the container terminal dynamically fluctuates as a function of a number of parameters. The most prominent variables influencing are the Economics’ National Program, the location and trading characteristics of the terminal, and the land use programs of hinterlands. Further, it is one terminal could serve more than one quay simultaneously. This research was conducted in order to determine the optimal performance of container terminals, along with the utilities to the increase in container terminal services Semarang. The results are expected to reveal the existing problems related to the services of a container terminal, especially regarding the following matters: review and develop performance indicators container terminals that is optimized especially for Semarang container terminal (TPKS), knowing the performance level of the container terminal at TPKS utility, and knowing the number of containers optimal service units, ranging from dock to yard container based on the rate of arrival of containers in TPKS. The research methodology used in this study is as follows: conducting a literature study/library, in order to obtain an overview of problems faced by the Semarang container terminal (TPKS), data collection related to the performance of container terminal, processing and analyzing research data to obtain a technical description of the various parameters needed in evaluating the Container Terminal Performance Indicators, Optimal Value of the service unit loading and unloading containers, ships and goods flow forecasting, producing Container Terminal Performance Indicators, formulate conclusions and recommendations from the results obtained in the performance evaluation process and service optimization Container Terminal loading and unloading of containers. The container terminal performance is an important indicator to evaluate the operational continuity and smoothness, in fulfilling its major function in serving the transportation mechanism of goods. One method to evaluate the container terminal performance is to observe the service level and utility of this terminal. From the evaluation’s results, a program to improve and to enhance the service levels for the future could be designed. The methodological approach accessed in this research work includes BOR (Berth Occupancy Ratio) data collecting, data processing and analysis using multiple methods, and producing a conclusion. The results are also to typical research topics. The study yielded in a BOR for the period till 2015 based on a BOR mooring of 34 – 45 percent. The benefits of this research can be used to improve container terminal performance.
