Abstract

Maximizing crane efficiency of shipping loading and unloading plays an important role in order for the modern sea transportation system to increase its port throughput with respect to pressures derived from the limited port size, high cargo transhipment volumes and limited physical facilities and equipments. This can explain the concerns with the crane scheduling and management aroused from the Port of Singapore Authority (PSA) and other world busiest ports (like Hong Kong and Australia).
