Yard Allocation Planning for Container Terminals Based on Twin 40ft Handing System
To solve the twin 40ft handing system for container terminal yard allocation, a rolling –horizon model of outbound container yard allocation planning is developed by the multi-objective planning method. Then a particle swarm algorithm is designed to obtain the optimum solution of the model. Finally, a numerical experiment shows that the proposed approach can solve the problem effectively.
