Currently, containers are used in the transport of products because of the point-to-point service they offer. By using specialized cranes, operation in maritime transport and land transport can be achieved quickly. To optimize the operation costs, the whole management of terminal is computerized proportionally with the complexity of the problem. The multi-agent system paradigm seems suitable to solve the computational problem. The communication between agents and the corresponding data warehouse is made by means of a number of content-oriented communication channels. For supplying an organized message routes to the system, an event oriented communication system has been developed. The communication channels determine the communication system architecture. This paper describes how common communications architecture for agents can facilitate the management of an industrial system. The aim is to separate the agents of the communications. The communications system used is based on the distributed blackboard architecture.
