Transporter control

Hello, I have a problem with transporter controling. 

How should it work?
Only two trucks will leave the parking at the beginning. The first truck will go to UNLOAD and the second truck will go to WAITPLACE. When the truck (UNLOAD) finished the unload, another truck (WAITPLACE) gets a sign for arriving to unloading place and at the same time when truck leave waiting place, another truck will leave the Parking.
I have to simulate 24 hours this way. 

I tried to create it but it does not work well.
Can anybody help me with that?

I have simplified your model; in the init-method I created the first two trucks; if you have no connectors, you dont need to lock and unlock the exits of the blocks and a simple exit control rear triggers the movement of the other trucks

have a look...

Thank you for your simplification.
But as soon as the truck arrives at the waiting place, the other truck immediately leaves UNLOAD. When I set UNLOAD Processing time for 50 minutes, is it possible for the truck on WAITPLACE to wait until the truck leaves the UNLOAD?

it is only a matter of animation, set the eventcontroller to realtime x100; then you can see the waiting of the truck in the waitPlace
