Quay to Storage Area Container Transfer: Critical Review of Modeling Techniques and Practical Outcomes

A substantial number of publish works for maritime container terminals focuses on the Quay to Storage area subsystem investigating locational, scheduling and job assignment problems for various equipment configuration, work plan formations, operating conditions and optimization objectives. The current work attempts to review published works in a way that reveals problems investigated, simplifications and assumptions in model formation, solution approaches and fruitful outcomes. Issues related to ship loading and unloading operations, assignment strategies of transfer vehicles, job assignment techniques etc are analyzed; contradictory outcomes are resolved and comments about the representativeness and applicability of the proposed models in real world problems are outlined.
