Abstract: This paper investigates the impact of fuel consumption on ship routing and scheduling problem. In current trends, the anthropogenic emission due to excess fuel consumption is a topic of intense debate in the global world ship trading society. We have modelled a problem as a mixed integer nonlinear programming (MINLP), which encounters the issues related to routing, fuel consumption, and customer demand. A meta-heuristic approach controlled elitist non-sorting genetic algorithm (CENSGA) has been proposed to solve the bi-objective problem. Finally, the utility of the model is demonstrated by a case study.

Keywords: carbon emission; ship routing; mixed integer nonlinear programming; meta-heuristic.
