Owing that the internal trucks (ITs) are frequently used as transportation equipments between yards and quaysides, the transportation efficiency of ITs secures a crucial position in container terminal productivity. Hence, a container terminal cannot contain a big number of ITs. As such, it is an imperative to explore an appropriate IT assignment strategy.(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)
Container terminals mainly include three types of handling equipment, i.e., quay cranes (QCs), internal trucks (ITs) and yard cranes (YCs). Due to high cost of the handling equipment, container terminals can hardly purchase additional handling equipment. Therefore, the reasonable scheduling of these handling equipment, especially coordinated scheduling of(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)
