[en] Operations research (OR) is a quantitative approach that uses advanced analytical methods to help managers make better decisions. The application of its techniques to freight transport and supply chain management raises challenges due to the structural complexity, the conflicting objectives of the various stakeholders, the foreseeable variations as well as the uncertainties inherent to studied cases. This article focuses on a collection of problems related to maritime, land and air transport that illustrate the three levels of decision-making: strategic, tactical and operational. The inherent characteristics of certain types of problems, their size or their complexity have given rise to the development of new heuristics. However, further developments are still needed. Research and studies have to be carried out to obtain good solutions for the new challenges arising from transport and logistics.
