Two multi-objective metaheuristic methods based on ant colony algorithm to simultaneously optimize the storage problem and the quayside transport problem observed during resolution of the container terminal problem are presented. The container terminal has to manage container traffic at the crossroads of land, road, and railway. The results of both metaheuristics are compared with those obtained by a complete enumeration of the solutions.
