In the Republic of Croatia port management varies based on the character of the port. The ports open for public traffic are managed by port authorities. Six port authorities are founded for ports of outstanding (international) economic importance to the Republic of Croatia and 22 port authorities for ports of county importance. Management mode for ports and organization and structure of port authorities and hierarchical structure in which they are incorporated depend on classification of ports according to their importance in transport and port system of the Republic of Croatia, which is conditioned by size and type of port traffic, condition and size of port capacities and connections of the port with hinterland.

According to the classification of ports as part of formal legal definition of Croatian port system, the port of Dubrovnik is categorized as passenger port open for public transport, it is one of six ports of international economic importance to the Republic of Croatia. Management of the port is directly under jurisdiction of the Ministry of Sea, Transport and Infrastructure, Directorate of Maritime Transport, Maritime Domain and Ports.

Considering the prevalence of specific types of transport, Dubrovnik port distinguishes among ports on Croatian part of the Adriatic by its orientation to cruise traffic. In other Adriatic passenger ports, such as Split, Šibenik and Zadar, liners traffic is more represented. The ports of county and local importance that are profiled in the direction of cruising accommodate smaller cruise ships. Although port operations are arranged according to same formal legal background, their business orientation in terms of types of traffic, conditions the organization of business process and contents of business activities as well as goals that are set in view of port management.

Dubrovnik port area, which is managed by this institution is characterized by remarkable economic potential, and is of strategic importance and interest to the entire region. With the aim of appropriate valorization of port area, in terms of achieving major positive social-economic effects, the Port Authority has launched a comprehensive project of development and modernization of the passenger port of Dubrovnik, with the ultimate goal of passenger port adapted to the highest modern standards, both in terms of content and quality of services and in terms of a sophisticated port system.

The Port of Durres is the most important port of Albania. It is located at the beginning of the main road linking Durres to the internal part of the country, which is now under restoration and extension. The port of Durres represents therefore the main gate for the goods arriving to and leaving from Albania; most of its traffic is with the countries involved in the project.

The partner is therefore relevant for the project activities as it will add the Albanian point of view and expertise in the activities promoted, as the analysis of the competitiveness of multimodal transport through the route crossing EU and non EU countries, but also implementing the census on ports and logistics facilities in the country.
