Because of an increase in population, the demand for coal has drastically
risen with millions of tons of coal being imported annually through Indian ports. To
accommodate with this rise in demand, there has been an increase in the concern over
proper ship scheduling and effective stockyard management. This article focuses on these
aspects, as well as train scheduling, in the context of coal imports in port terminals. The
article employs two heuristic-based greedy construct algorithms to improve port terminal
throughput capacity by minimizing the delay of ships in port terminal. Applicability and
validity of the model is tested on the database of a port located along the east coast of India.
