Network Analysis of the Mediterranean Port Supply Chain Structures

As a real part of virtual business, transportation networks have become an important global interaction factor with computer-based communication technologies' recent advent. One could describe a lattice of networks as connecting the supply chain and transportation. The authors describe analysis, as a network is created by liner routes, starting with port (system member) relationship description data. The authors focus on obtaining system structure higher-level description and low-level relational data. In the relationship set, various kinds of patterns are identified through higher-level description. The relationship of individual organizations to other network ports will form the basis of these patterns. The authors' primary research goal is most important network actor(s) identification. Several measures are also presented to highlight liner network important and marginal port differences. Along with various definition-generated mathematical concepts, prominence and importance are also defined.
