The presented hierarchical approach uses the relationships of development of global economy and container flows at different geographical levels: global (container throughput in all seaport on the world), regional (container throughput in the Baltic seaports) and national (container throughput in Polish seaports). Model have been evaluated for their fit and usefulness for predictive purposes. }, doi = {10.12716/1001.09.04.01}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Containerization, Container Port, Container Terminal, Hierarchical Model, Container Traffic, TEU, Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) in Gdansk, Container Throughput} }
