This paper proposes a new dynamic Yard Crane (YC) workload partition scheme in container terminals. The main contribution is the time partitioning algorithm which finds a sequence of time windows to match closely the changing workload distribution and get the maximum benefit of the space partition algorithm. Experimental results show that the proposed time partition algorithm plays the most important role in making substantial improvements over basic partition scheme in all tested workload scenarios.
