Integrating berth allocation and quay crane assignments
In this study, a dynamic allocation model using objective programming for berth allocation and quay crane assignments was preliminarily developed based on rolling-horizon approach. Afterwards, a hybrid parallel genetic algorithm (HPGA), which combined parallel genetic algorithm (PGA) and heuristic algorithm, was employed to resolve the proposed model. Furthermore, a simulation was conducted to evaluate the HPGA and to execute relevant gene repair techniques. Eventually, the numerical experiments on a specific container terminal were applied to illustrate the proposed models and algorithms. In so doing, the effectiveness of the proposed approach was verified.
