We address two problems that affect operational costs as well as the service level of a liner shipping company: The service scheduling problem and the cargo allocation problem. The service scheduling problem aims at determining optimal port call times of liner shipping services. It is a generalization of the simpler speed optimization problem. Different to previous studies (e.g. Guericke and Tierney, 2015) it does not only determine the speed and fuel consumption between subsequent port calls, but also the weekly berth times at each port. In liner shipping networks the schedules of individual liner shipping services establish the transshipment times between pairs of services that call the same port.
