Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to review the literature on peripheral ports, hub ports and concentration – deconcentration factors. This is an issue since investments in port development in more peripheral locations are challenging due to the difficult financial situation currently faced by the maritime industry. Design/methodology/approach –This paper presents a narrative literature review focusing on peripherality in the context of seaports and transport. Moreover, it gathers the reasons why ports concentrate - deconcentrate, and how these factors evolve over time. Findings – This paper develops a future research agenda for peripheral ports. Practical implications – The paper provides insights for ports in developing countries in their efforts to upgrade their port facilities and infrastructure. Originality/value – This paper contributes to the research on ports in peripheral locations which have been under studied compared to larger hub ports.
