Summary Sentence: Planning Container Drayage Operations at Congested Seaports

Full Summary: Planning Container Drayage Operations at Congested Seaports

This dissertation considers daily operations management for a fleet of trucks providing container pickup and delivery service to a port. Truck congestion at access points for ports may lead to serious inefficiencies in drayage operations, and the resultant cost impact to the intermodal supply chain can be significant. Recognizing that port congestion is likely to continue to be a major problem for drayage operations given the growing volume of international containerized trade, this research seeks to develop optimization approaches for maximizing the productivity of drayage firms operating at congested seaports. Specifically, this dissertation addresses two daily drayage routing and scheduling problems - drayage routing and scheduling problems that incorporate known time-dependent waiting time for port access; and drayage routing and scheduling problems with port access time slot capacities.
