Quay crane allocation is one of the most important scheduling plans in the container terminal. A large of production data is stored in the database of the terminal. This paper utilizes the method of data mining to analyze the problem of quay crane allocation by using these data. From the mining, valuable information has been gotten from the database. The(More)
The paper focuses on determining the storage position of the reshuffled container during dynamic retrieving outbound container for loading ship. The study concentrates on a yard bay with several tiers in every stack. For minimizing the uncertainty influence of relocation on the loading ship system and ensuring the fluency of loading operations, we suggest(More)
Both of berth allocation and quay crane assignment are one of the most complex parts in container terminal operations, which significantly affect the operational efficiency, energy consumption and operational cost of the entire container terminal. Therefore, it is necessary to develop an efficient strategy for integrated berth allocation and quay crane(More)
In this study, to improve the efficiency of the container terminal and to reduce the total energy consumption, a rule-based joint berth allocation and quay crane assignments model has been developed based on rolling-horizon approach. Further, the optimization rules and algorithm has been proposed and discussed in details. The feasibility and effectiveness(More)
A rolling-horizon approach was proposed, which aims at the problem of berth allocation and quay crane assignment. Then a dynamic allocation model using objective programming was initially developed for berths allocation and quay crane assignment, which more closes realistic as result of basing continuum quayside. The model objective function was subject to(More)
