ABSTRACT
India is a maritime country, and in its overall economic development, shipping is a crucial activity. In recent times containerization of cargo has increased, and now in an integrated and globalized world sea transportable goods in our country are required to be transported in containers. In this paper, a demand forecasting model is presented in the overall context for the development of an integrated container shipping model for Indian ports. The present paper discusses a demand forecasting model in which a combined methodology based on neural networks, fuzzy logic and genetic algorithms is used to predict an important parameter from shipping at some future point of time. Finally, a case study that is motivated by real world applications and data is presented to validate the forecasting model.
