We present a mathematical model to support joint decisions for container shiprouting and container terminal berth allocation. This model is particularly useful for shipping companies that operate container vessels as well as self-owned terminals, where it helps to coordinate the routing, berthing time, and berth assignment of the vessels. Using this model and randomly generated data, we conduct computational experiments to investigate the potential cost-saving benefits attainable by the integrated operations.
