Undoubtedly, container transportation is one of the factors contributing to the development of transportation and its speed in the today world. But the problem remains in the container transportation area as an unresolved issue is the empty container problem which due to the unbalancing between export and import of goods in all ports of the world. In this paper, investigated the reposition of empty containers under uncertain conditions of some problem parameters. a robust scenario-based approach based on the scenario tree analysis method has been used under different scenarios to modeling the uncertainty of some of the problem parameters. In order to evaluate and validate the proposed model, the data from Iran maritime port network are used. The computational results indicate the appropriate performance of proposed robust model, under uncertainty conditions, and also the importance of using robust approach in creating reposition of empty containers robust plans under uncertain conditions.
