Abstract: This paper discusses an approach to build a multiagent system for simulating container management in a hub port logistics. The simulator has as goal to help assessing and defining container management strategies. This allows to plan and to control the management of containers while minimizing the waiting time and the parasite shifts and insuring the consistency of the performed tasks sequence. The proposed model involves the multi-point of view and the emergence of behavior specific to the theory of complex systems. The paper is structured as follows: first we present related works, then we expose the multiagent model of the simulator, after that we present the internal structure of the agents and finally we provide and discuss first implementation and results.
