An AHP decision support model for the hub port choice of the shipping liners on the mediterranean region

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution book

Abstract

This paper applies the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to analyse hub-port selection in the Mediterranean Sea. For the AHP, 5 main criteria and 16 sub-criteria are determined through the conducted studies in the literature review by taking consideration the characteristic features of the region. The comparison of criterion is conducted by service providers which are port users, ocean carrier operators and other service providers in the region. The obtained survey results are applied to pre-determined 3 candidate ports which are Piraeus Port (Greece), Candarli Port (Turkey) and Gioia Port (Italy). The AHP model gives the best score to Piraeus Port with Candarli Port facility taking second place.
