The growth of foreign trade and globalization emphasize the weaknesses of extended supply chain in front of occurrence of disruptive events that impact differently (deviation, disruption, disaster) the normal operation, in some cases the consequences are temporary but the worst scenario is when the event produces a permanent cessation of its activities. Then the ports are a strategic actor because if they have problems with their operations the others in the supply chain will be affected negatively, so the ports resilience determines the level of resilience of multiple supply chain in which they participate. Because of this it is necessary to have tools that provide support to the process of risk management in order to have proactive and reactive, responses to the different disruption events that may occur in its operation. In this paper a multiagent approach to risk management in container terminal is presented.
