About 90% of the world trade is carried by the international maritime shipping industry. Being the vital link between sea and land, this amount of seaborne trade also has a significant impact on ports. Being a competitive industry, ports have to focus on efficiency, effectiveness and cost reduction in the maritime supply chain. Good hinterland connections, including shortsea shipping, contribute significantly to the attractiveness of ports and terminals. Therefore, it is important to have a good understanding of the transport, logistics and supply chain, as well as the connections to ports and terminals. Ports and terminals play a central role in the connection between the water and land domain of the maritime supply chain. In relation to this, legal components play an important role as well, just as the brokering and chartering of ships.
