Abstract

This thesis discusses the connection between container terminals and the hinterland railway system. Mathematical models are proposed to formulate the various relevant operations and methods are developed to provide solutions to improve the system performance. This thesis could provide suggestions to decision maker(s) regarding to the improvement in both inter-terminal transport system and the hinterland railway system, i.e., increasing the number of containers delivered on time with lower costs.
