ABSTRACT. In this paper I analyse how the economic agglomeration of a port is affected by the integration of companies composing it into international supply chains, studying the specific case of container terminals from Constanta Port. To notice the effects that supply chains have on the economies of agglomeration Iobserve internal and external economies from the perspectives of scale, scope and complexity. Afterwards, to emphasize the distinction between supply chains and agglomeration economies I engage in a comparative study between a global and a local terminal operator, both active on Constanta Port container handling market
