    Abstract

    This report deals with the problem of positioning containers in a yard block of a port container terminal. The objective of the Container Positioning Problem (CPP) is to minimize the total cost of handling containers in the terminal yard. This is done by reducing the number of reshuffles in each storage block since these are very costly operations. To solve this problem, a mixed-integer linear programming model for the general CPP is formulated and discussed.
