    Maritime container terminals are essential infrastructures in global supply chains. Their high management complexity and heterogeneous processes make them an interesting field to apply heuristics. A brief overview of the main optimization problems found at maritime container terminals and a review of the way they are related to each other are firstly introduced. In order to solve these problems, several heuristics are presented and analyzed. The computational results reveal that they are suitable to be applied in practical scenarios due to the fact that they provide high-quality solutions in short computational times.
