|Abstract: ||Abstract:This study considers the time cost incurred when a container ship is queuing to enter a port and when a container ship arrives at the port ahead of or behind the scheduled time. With this regard, we discussed the best way of collecting congestion tolls in order to entirely or partially compensate for the queuing time cost. By means of this strategy of collecting congestion tolls, ships’ departure schedule can be rationally altered, and consequently disperse ships’ arrival time. This research derived a series of the optimal congestion toll scheme, in order to eliminate or diminish ships’ queuing time for port entry. We also investigated the consequent changes of merchant ships’ departure schedule after
collecting congestion tolls, in order to analyze ship owners’ behaviors. These results not only
are of academic purposes, but can also be used as practical reference for the ship owner and the harbor bureau.
