Cities and metropolitan areas serve a wide variety of functions. Those cities which have a port function may be subject to significant increases in traffic flows. Thus in recent years port activities have at times been viewed as a problem by those responsible for traffic planning in the city with which the port is connected. This paper considers the port-city interactions over time and highlights how these have changed. A new phase of these interactions may be at hand with significant implications for urban freight movements. Ports’ strategies are constantly evolving and port managers seek to make better use of the port’s assets. One of the main assets is land and here there are some emerging trends that have important implications for the port-city interface. In addition, city authorities are increasingly looking for opportunities to use non-road modes for some of the movements of goods to, from and possibly within their cities. Cities that are connected to a port have some interesting opportunities in this area. These developments imply a new period of more intense port-city interaction.
