In most large port cities, the challenge of inter-terminal transfers (ITT) prevails due to the long distance between multiple terminals. The quantity of containers requiring movement between terminals as they connect from pre-carrier to on-carrier is increasing with the formation of the mega-alliances.

The paper proposes a continuous time mathematical programming model to optimize the deployment and schedule of trucks and barges to minimize the number of operating transporters, their makespan, costs and the distance travelled by the containers by choosing the right combination of transporters and container movements while fulfilling time window restrictions imposed on reception of the containers.

A multi-step routing problem is developed where transporters can travel from one terminal to another and/or load or unload containers from a specific batch at each step.

The model proves successful in identifying the costless schedule and means of transportation. And a sensibility analysis over the parameters used is provided.
