Abstract: In transshipment ports, the loading and unloading activities are both concentrated and inevitably happen at the same time. Thus the storage yard management is more challenging than that in a general import-export container terminal. Our studies on storage yard management can be divided into three phases, namely yard sectioning, yard template planning and space allocation. This paper focuses on the short-term space allocation from an integrated perspective, where all yard resources are considered. A flexible space-sharing strategy is used in this study to improve the space utilization while storing the containers according to their destination vessel for a faster loading process. A MIP model is formulated for space allocation considering the storage space, yard cranes and prime movers. Numerical experiments show that the MIP model can effectively control violations in short-term space allocation. And the flexible space-sharing strategy can increase the storage capacity and make the storage yard more adaptable to fluctuations caused by vessel delay. © 2013 IEEE.
