This chapter addresses different optimization/simulation approaches for the innovative logistics in Le Havre port in France. These approaches are applied to various decisional problems raised in the maritime terminals (MT) and in the multimodal terminal (MMT). The first problem concerns container transfer by rail between the maritime terminals and the multimodal terminal. The second aims to optimize trains/shuttles parking in the rail yard of the multimodal terminal. The third and the fourth are about rail-rail transshipment of containers. The goal is to elaborate a dashboard for decision makers to analyze and evaluate performance indicators of port logistics chain (costs, resource occupancy rate, service rate) and to test several management strategies.
