This article focuses on the rise of port networks as a new stage in the development pattern of seaports. As a consequence of fundamental developments, portrelated activities are assumed to locate in secondary centres around major seaports. The rise of a port network is showing up for the port of Rotterdam. To strengthen the functioning of the port in the new constellation, the port is recommended to change its strategy from function accumulation to function specialisation and cooperation with other nodes and regions. The Baltic region is suggested to be included in the network formation by the port of Rotterdam. As traditional points of entry to the Russian market, Baltic ports can support the role of Rotterdam as a main port for Russia.
