The improvements introduced in the transportation sector have propitiated that a merchandise flow can be transported efficiently from different ports and, consequently, they have come accompanied by an increase of the infrastructure investment. However, the port selection carried out from the Spanish provinces to channel their flows of containers remains stable, what suggests that it has not responded to the competitive strategies developed by the managers of the biggest peninsular ports, whose result seems to be related with their respective location.
