Four strategic models, combining different manpower supply principles, flexible management strategies and related operating constraints, are developed to help an air cargo terminal manage its long-term manpower supply more effectively. The models are formulated as integer/mixed integer linear programs, which are solved using a mathematical programming solver. To evaluate how the models perform in practice, a case study, utilizing the operating data of a domestic air cargo terminal in Taiwan, is conducted. The preliminary test results show that the four models are efficient and effective, and could be applied to actual operations.
