Abstract: In this dissertation, four tactical-level decision problems for liner shipping companies are addressed: fleet deployment, sailing speed optimization, ship route schedule design, and liner shipping network design. These decision problems focus on different aspects of liner shipping services with different inputs and outputs. However, their common objective is to minimize the total cost, or, to maximize the total profit, for liner shipping companies. All the above models and algorithms are tested based on realistic data provided by a global liner shipping company. The applicability of the models and the efficacy of the algorithms are demonstrated. Managerial insights from the computational results are obtained.
