Abstract: In this paper a discrete event simulation model for intermodal barge transport (SIMBA) is presented. The intermodal context in Belgium is described. The simulation model covers the hinterland waterway network of a major port in Western-Europe. The simulation modeling approach is elaborated. The SIMBA model is part of a larger decision support system for intermodal transport policy making (DSSITP). The simulation model is applied to analyze potential impacts of adding a new intermodal barge terminal to a hinterland network.
