Container ports have faced increasing development for the last 10 years. In such systems, the container transportation system has the mostimportant effect on the total system. Therefore, there is a continuous need for the optimal use of equipment and facilities in the ports.Regarding to the several complicated structure and activities in container ports, this paper evaluates and compares two different storagestrategies for storing containers in the yard. To do so and in order to cover all actual stochastic events occurring in the system, a simulationmodel of the real system was developed by using loading and unloading norms as important criteria to evaluate the performance of ShahidRajaee container port. By replicating of the simulation model and considering the two strategies, it was shown that using a marshalling yardpolicy has a significant effect on the performance level of the port which leads to cost reductions
