    Human resources allocation plays a key role in Transhipment Maritime ContainerTerminals to achieve high levels of productivity and provide high quality services to shippingcompanies. The deep interest of container terminals in this issue can be supported by optimizationmethods. In this work, an optimization model is proposed to determine the optimal daily allocationof crane operators and trailer drivers. Different requirements are taken into account for permanentstaff, external workers and personnel shortfall. Since workforce undermanning is a crucial factorfor both shipping companies and container terminals, we aim to show that personnel shortfalls andoperation delays can be significantly reduced if the model encompasses a longer-than-one-dayplanning horizon in a rolling horizon fashion.
