Indonesia is one of the archipelago countries that has around 62% water area. To maximize the utilization of this condition, there are many freight and cargo shipping company that can be found in Indonesia. This paper is focusing on the stevedoring activity in the container yard. During the observation, researcher found a problem that is during the loading and unloading the container, the truck must wait in a long queue. It causes the stevedoring activity require a longer time to be completed. The goal of this paper is to find out the relationship between the operation time of each type of equipment in the container yard and the queueing problem of the head truck during loading and unloading activity. The method used in this paper is multiple linear regression with the combination of some tools in quality control. After one month collecting the data, the researcher come up with regression equation to understand the relationship between the equipment operation time and the queueing problem.
