Cargo transportation between the ports and their hinterland is facilitated by rail transportation. The seaport's performance largely depends on how well the rail system operates inside the port. The increased time spent by the wagons in the port ultimately affects the delivery time of goods to the recipients. The article focuses on the issues concerning the interaction of seaports with rail transportation, particularly with several seaport terminals, and how they affect the effectiveness of port operations. This paper investigates wagons' processes and their movements on the rail network in a port. A simulation approach is first used to diagnose the actual situation of the movement of the wagons in the port. The results indicate that the system is experiencing a bottleneck, and there is an opportunity for enhancing its performance. In order to mitigate the bottlenecks within the system, two scenarios were evaluated and analyzed.
