    Description

    Improving container terminal productivity is a shared goal between carriers and terminal operators. The Flexible Ship Loading Problem investigates a collaboration between the carrier, which provides a class-based stowage plan, and the terminal. The latter now has the flexibility of determining the position of specific containers, while planning the handing operations. In this work, we present how such a problem can be modelled, and how a hybrid heuristic approach can be used to find high-quality solutions in short computational time.
