Abstract

The competition between airports and ports is intensifying, and countries are actively implementing and promoting policies to strengthen their competitiveness and role of a logistics hubs. Airports and ports play a key role in national competitiveness because they serve as logistics platforms for air transport and sea transport. Major countries are improving airports and ports as part of the competitive struggle and actively pursuing policies to gain a competitive advantage as logistics platforms and hubs. In order to improve efficiency, it is essential to develop a logistics strategy. In this study, we analyse the changes in transport volume in major airports and ports in South Korea, China, and Hong Kong, and assess South Korea’s logistics strategy and competitiveness. We present and discuss studies on the importance of logistics strategies for efficient operation of airports and ports.
