Abstract
Ports are often seen as engines behind regional economis developmentm, because
ports attract a variety of economics activities. This paper focuses on the role of
ports in global supply chains and the opportunities to attract new economic
activities in logistics. The central argument of the paper is that the role of ports as
a location for logistics activities evolves with the evolution of logistics concepts
towards central coordination and more decentralized physical distribution, ports
will see its multinational function diminish, eventually replaced by logistics
activities with a more regional gunction and stronger integrated with production
activities. Ports then have to face the competition from inland locations for value
added logistics activities. The case of logistics developments provides a basis for
analysing the increasingly important questions "What logistics activities ports can
attract?" and " What is the appropriate strategy to result in this?"
