Ports in Proximity provides an overview of key contemporary research in the field through a broad range of international case
studies. The concepts of strategic management, supply chain management, port and transport economics and economic and transport
geography are applied throughout the book to offer an in-depth understanding of the processes underlying spatial and functional
dynamics in port systems. The opportunities for cooperation between competing adjacent ports is examined while the avenues
for further joint research are identified, setting an agenda for further study.
