Containerization has revolutionized international freight transport. It makes possible to optimize port handling operations and offers multimodality. In addition, the construction of increasingly large container vessels allows economies of scale while smart logistics thanks to the development of the Internet of Things, increase companies’ flexibility and responsiveness. However, international multimodal transportation is subject to random events (risks) and suffers from lack of visibility which severely impacts the entire supply chain. In order to deal with these problems, research has been carried out in the field of supply chain risk management and the literature has been widely populated. This work deals with multimodal container supply chain risk management using traceability and visibility Data. The main objective of this paper is to analyze proposed solutions to improve the supply chains efficiency by acting on risk management in containers transportation, highlighting literature gaps and providing future research directions. Finally, a specific approach for real-time management of shipments by taking into account random events is proposed.
