Ports and maritime transport: axes of a new global articulation

The proliferation of multifunctional ports allows intentification transhipment activities, demanding more infrastructures and specific services. Ports, defined as meeting points among the different stakeholders involved in transport and services, become both convergence spaces among the different transport systems and service suppliers; and they also integrate into a system that supplies goods and demands logistic developments. This paper describes the different forms of organisation adopted by the shipping companies, their collaboration agreements and alliances; and it also determines the different levels of port choice and hierarchy in accordance with the structure and development of the shipping agents with regards to routes and port models.
