Cascading feeder vessels and the rationalisation of small container ports (2017)
Journal Article
Monios, J. (2017). Cascading feeder vessels and the rationalisation of small container ports. Journal of Transport Geography, 59, 88-99. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jtrangeo.2017.02.001

Small container ports rely on feeder services from hub ports to provide access to unitised trade flows for their hinterlands. They generally possess limited water depth and handling facilities, as investments required to handle larger vessels are not...

The hierarchical configuration of the container port industry: an application of multiple linkage analysis (2012)
Journal Article
Cullinane, K., & Wang, Y. (2012). The hierarchical configuration of the container port industry: an application of multiple linkage analysis. Maritime Policy and Management, 39, 169-187. https://doi.org/10.1080/03088839.2011.650719

This paper aims to provide a hierarchical configuration of the container port industry. It attempts to do so by determining a port hierarchy and then, utilising this, deriving the nature of the spatial interactions between sample ports in East Asia....
