This chapter 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. The research is exploratory and considers journal papers that provide insights into the port–city interface and the hinterland transport issues, and reports and other grey literature from a sample of ports that highlight changes in planning and policy with regard to land use that is under the control of (or can be influenced by) the port authority.
