Strategies for Mediterranean Port Development

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


In this paper we discuss development strategies that may be used by ports in the Mediterranean as we are about to enter the new century. Increased integration of ports within intermodal transport chains is expected to play a key role in that development. Issues such as infrastructure and superstructure improvement, financing, pricing, and optimal use of port resources are seen as critical factors that will influence future port competitiveness and performance. The container market is used as the main context of this paper, although other sectors are also mentioned.
