Abstract
The enormous potential of combined transport (railway-road) makes the railway the main alternative to the freight transport by road in the European Union. Unfortunately, the European railway network is strongly fragmented, having different bottleneck points. The current work centers on the transhipment tasks in the Port Bou terminal. This terminal is a bottleneck point because of the different track gauges of the Spanish and French rail tracks. In order to optimize the use of the gantry cranes and the available means for train-train transhipment, a model of linear programming which allows the automation of the containers transhipment plans is proposed in this article. An Analytic Decision Support application is used to develop the model. As a result of this research it can be concluded that the problem can be solved through linear programming and the model proposed could be transferred both to other transhipment terminals and to cargo terminals
