Languages of publication
The article examines the competitiveness of small Baltic container terminals. In order to conduct the research, thirty terminals, whose annual maximum throughput capacity does not exceed 150,000 TEU, have been examined taking into consideration a number of criteria which are: length of the quay (C1), number of RTG (C2) and STS (C3) cranes, number of shortsea shipping connections (C4), maximum (technical) depth at the quay (C5), distance from motorways and expressways/national roads (C6), distance from the national railway station (C7). Selected k=7 criteria were used to perform PROMETHEE II (Preference Ranking Organization Method for Enrichment Evaluations II) multi-criteria ranking that enabled specifying those Baltic Sea container nodes which are in the area of strategic benefits for the analysed market sector.
