Any games suggestion which game play mechanic gives the feel of managing and optimizing a supple chain and logistic line beyond just pick up and deliver ?

There was this shipping game, Container, I heard its more towards supply and demand rather than moving things about ?

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

and +1 for Neuland

Plus you should be able to pick up a used copy of Neuland on the cheap. Play by the 1st edition rules for the superior game-play.

A bit different one, and you'd have to wait a bit - 1944: Race to the Rhine

Logistics Command was actually about conflict. Oddly enough, it was published by Westinghouse.

You should probably check the Container page. Maybe see if the videos give a good overview, because the shipping aspect of it is secondary. It's more about producing things you think the other players will pay for (by bidding on your full ship) when it delivers, then using that money to bid on the ships you want. It's pretty strategic.

If the logistical (move and fulfill demand) is the more interesting aspect, you might look at something like Kings of Air and Steam. It's got planned movement a la Roborally, variable market, and multi-stage shipping (airships -> train -> city) to deliver goods.

Also, many train games like Steam/Age of Steam (I prefer the former). In this case, you have to build the rail routes to accomplish the shipping.

There are others, but not that I've played. Not sure if I can think of any where the player controls both the production, and the shipping.

Well the game dont have to be thematically abt shipping or bringing goods, whats important is that it have elements of planning several areas of production/value adding process to which can be optimize to achieve a better final result and also penalty for those who don't
