Abstract: Recognizing that the air cargo industry is growing rapidly, more and more air cargo terminals will be expanded to cater for the increasing air cargo volume. In order to operate in a cost effective manner while maintaining the high competencies, improving the productivity of the air cargo terminal is an obvious choice. As the air cargo terminal operation is manpower intensive, productivity improvement of this precious resource has become the main focus of this study. Two works are done aiming to help the terminal to increase the productivity of the workers in the air cargo terminal through optimization methods. The first project is done to improve the operations of the ASRS (Automated Storage and Retrieval System) retrieval policy; while the manpower planning model for the Checking Team is discussed in the second project.
