From the reviews:
"Computer-based simulation and optimization techniques are invaluable tools in analyzing different design and operation options. In their timely collection of papers, Kim and Gunther focus on the design, operations management, and logistics control issues for container terminals. ... The book provides an overview of recent developments in this area. It is an excellent resource for readers who are looking for scientific solutions to real-world problems, and for researchers who are looking for potential new open problems in this area."
