Abstract: Abstract:Container flow information is a critical issue for port operators and liners to support their strategic planning and decision-making. This study uses artificial neural networks (ANNs) to predict container flows by considering GDP, interest rates, the value of export and import trade, the numbers of export and import containers and the number of quay cranes. ANNs are developed for data mining purposes, and the developed model can simultaneously predict container flows between the major ports of Asia. The forecasting results indicate that the prediction errors are relatively small in most selected ports, and thus shipping companies can use the container flow prediction model to make decisions concerning operations. The results can be further applied to the trend analysis of container flows among the major ports of Asia, and a community analysis of the containers was conducted for the purpose of supply chain management.
