    Regarding that the text I'm reading is on "intermodal container terminals" could anyone explain to me does the word "ship" only refers to the big vehicle navigates over the sea"? Can I assume that it conveys the concept of "transportaion (goods)"?

    Could I assume that it means somehow "shipment"?

    Here is some example:
    For the export containers, for example, the containers flow starts some weeks before the ship arrival date and depends on the number of missing days. In principle, the closest the ship arrival date the highest the number of containers that come into the terminal for that ship.

    The main variables to be kept in consideration in this architecture are the current terminal configuration (in terms of container locations), the scheduled operation (in terms of vessels to be loaded/unloaded), the storage policy and the forecast events (in terms of expected flow of ships and containers).

    Re: ship

    'Ship' here seems to have its normal meaning - a large boat.
