When a port needs to be reopened after closure due to a natural disaster or terrorist event or domestic dispute, certain goods on incoming ships might be in short supply. This paper formulates the problem of scheduling the unloading of waiting ships to take into account the desired arrival times, quantities, and designated priorities of goods on those ships. Several objective functions are defined, special cases are discussed, and the relevant literature is surveyed.
