ABSTRACT: Ports and wharves are essential parts of the infrastructure that enable the transport of goods on inland waterways. Integrating the network of inland waterways and land modes of transport, the ports are the main hubs of the transport network, they encourage economic activities and enable the development of the region. The port of "Novi Sad" is located on the left bank of the Danube River, river km 1254, and is open to international traffic. This is an exceptional location where water corridor (VII) and Pan-European Corridor X intersect and form a hub for international communication and transport. Novi Sad port’s location strength is not only of a geographical nature, it also has excellent transport links as it is only 0.3 km from the railway junction of Corridor X and 3 km from the land Corridor X. The development of the port of "Novi Sad" would be related to the growth of it’s industry in the background. Considering the favorable geographical position and the growing economic activity, especially in the trade exchange with the countries that are in the Black Sea basin, the port of "Novi Sad" could achieve the status of a river-sea port in addition to it’s international status. In accordance with the Water Transport Development Strategy of Republic of Serbia, the port of "Novi Sad" could be developed to the extent that it becomes competitive on the market and provides transboatment and storage services in accordance to the world standards.
