Challenges for Polish Seaports' Development in the Light of Globalisation Processes in Maritime Transport
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: Ports operations become more capital intensive, labour saving and space consuming. Due to globalization processes and liberalization of the EU transport markets the seaports are under the huge competitive pressure put mainly by container transport operators committed in the logistic transport chains. Polish seaports have difficulties in facing such a competitive environment.
