An optimization approach for security operations in a container seaport

The terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001 have increased the needs to implement security inspection of container transport. This paper aims to evaluate the impact of imposing container inspection procedures on container port operations, and to optimize port throughput at the same time. A mathematical model is proposed to characterize the container operation. A genetic algorithm is then presented for optimal solution, to minimize the aggregate delays for outbound vessels.

Abstract

The terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001 have increased the needs to implement security inspection of container transport. This paper aims to evaluate the impact of imposing container inspection procedures on container port operations, and to optimize port throughput at the same time. A mathematical model is proposed to characterize the container operation. A genetic algorithm is then presented for optimal solution, to minimize the aggregate delays for outbound vessels.
