Abstract: This research work studies the modeling and optimization for an air cargo inbound terminal. Operations in the terminal include cargo receiving, checking-packing, order-picking, and shipping. There are many factors that affect the operation performances in the terminal. The factors investigated in this thesis are the cargo flow time, workload balancing, and congestion effects. A multi-objective mixed-integer programming model is formulated to improve the assignment plan. It aims to provide a series of non-dominated solutions. These solutions are then input to a simulation framework which will identify the best solution(s) to the preference of the decision maker. The performances of these solutions in simulation are collected and compared for decision making.Such a research approach including MIP formulation and simulation modeling is applied to an inbound air cargo terminal. Extensive computational experiments are conducted with actual data as the input sources.
