Abstract


Ports play important roles in linking transportation routes and distributing cargo, which promote the national and regional economy and trade development. Although ports formerly dominated the distribution and transportation of cargo in the era of sailing boats all over the world, their monopoly has been challenged more and more fiercely during the process of economic globalization and integration. Under the current economic conditions, the competition or opposition between the ports are not suitable for their normal operation. In order to adapt to the ongoing reformation of sea transportation, it is inevitable that port resources integrate to take advantage of complementary cooperation. As the integration of resource can optimize the allocation of the limited port resources, it brings about overall advantage to promote the development of port cluster and regional economy. However, a lot of problems would still need to face in the practical process. To meet the requirements of economic and social development, the researchers have launched a large number of theoretical and practical researches in their field about the development of port resource integration. So, the theoretical and practical researches in the published papers are studied to open out the significances of port resource integration and seek after the solution to the problems in development of ports in the present study.
