In this paper we present two mathematical formulations and a heuristic approach for the train load planning problem of import containers at a seaport container terminal. The problem consists of determining how to assign a set of containers of different length and weight to the wagons of a train in order to satisfy capacity constraints of both the wagons and the train, while minimizing the rehandling...
