The development of systems and technology in the industry especially in the supply chain sector currently has a significant influence on the speed and accuracy along the supply chain. This is one of the reasons to build a container loading and unloading service company located in Surabaya. Terminal Teluk Lamong is the one and only Indonesian company that applies the green port concept with renewable loading and unloading equipment technology. One of the unique and prominent renewable concepts is the docking station, which aims to speed up unloading activities. Because the condition of container unloading activities is more common, this research focuses on container unloading activity only. Currently, the port has five yards available with 30 docking gates on the unloading side. The problem is the yard occupancy ratio (YOR) in unloading activity which has a low percentage value (27%). Even though the percentage value should be around 60%, therefore the value of yard utility didn't optimal yet. A discrete-event simulation (DES) aims to help classify which yards are suitable for unloading activities and the rest for loading activities. The model verification is obtained "no error" and model validation is less than 5%. For all scenarios conclude that the best scenario is to use three-yard containers with six gates of docking for each yard.
