To gain cost advantages, many shipping companies generate ship schedules which minimizes transportation cost. There are effective in a stable environment. However, there are vulnerable to supply chain disruptions caused by uncertain economic crisis, natural and man-made disasters. Effectively responding to such disruption risk is of crucial importance for continuing business activities. For this purpose, it is necessary to generate ship schedules which result in quick and sufficient distribution of supplies, with a focus on equitable service to all locations concerting the disruptions. However, quantifying such goals can be challenging. In this work, we introduce alternate objectives in ship scheduling problem which are different from the one minimizing transportation costs. Moreover, we show how these objective functions affect the ship schedules.
