Only taxi as only a certain company serves the port.

There is usually a shuttle bus that will run from the dock to the train station, the bus station and sometimes downtown Ashdod. If there is such a service (and there is a charge) that would be the easiest way to go.

The only other transit options from the dock itself would be a free shuttle bus from the dock to the port entrance.

There is no longer a taxi company that is allowed into the port itself.

There is no direct bus from the port entrance to the train - so you would have to get to the Central Bus Station and then get another bus.

Ashdod is just a residential town. Use your time to go to Jerusalem or Tel Aviv.

There are taxis at the dock you can take. I would go to Tel Aviv. The museum in Ashdod is being renovated and is temporarily housed in another building. What day of the week will you be here and for how many hours(since you said its a short time)?

You're right - with such a short time in port you are best just sticking to Ashdod. Come back again with more time to explore more of Israel.
