The goods movement via terminals at ports is a complex operation as it involves use of different modes of transport that includes surface and marine. In this paper, we present three simulation models which can be used to understand and evaluate these operations. The macroscopic simulation model simulates the flows in and out of terminals and ports and it is integrated with a microscopic simulation model of the adjacent road network. A terminal cost model receives inputs from these two models to evaluate the cost associated with the processing of containers inside the terminal. The use of the three models is demonstrated by evaluating the impact of terrorist attack scenarios on a container terminal in LA/LB Port complex. © 2009 IFAC.
