Abstract

While numerous references exist on the topics of terminal design, container logistics, and vessel scheduling, only a limited number of papers address the need for a workforce management system tailored to the highly dynamic container terminal environment. This seminar will highlight the issues that differentiate workforce scheduling at container terminals from other scheduling problems; describe several mathematical models for producing a yard staffing plan that promotes fairness across employees in the scheduling of overtime; and present preliminary results based on data inspired by the Beirut Container Terminal Consortium (BCTC).
