This paper models the seaport system with the objective of determining the optimal storage strategy for various container-handling schedules. A container location model (CLM) is developed, with an objective function designed to minimise the turn around time of container ships, and solved using genetic algorithm (GA). The results section presents an analyses of different resource levels and a comparison with current practice at the Port of Brisbane.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
