Proposing of a port-centric hierarchical logistics clustering model for Turkey by A. Zafer Acar Abstract: Logistics clusters, which are the spatial concentration areas of many logistics processes and operations of logistics related firms, make significant contribution to the competitiveness of economies and logistics companies via the development of logistics infrastructure and the creation of synergy based on co-operation. Therefore, establishing logistics clusters in areas which are close to the production and consumption centers, national and international transportation corridors, have developed transportation infrastructure, and high access to airports and ports and are essential. This study performed qualitatively to respond to the needs of developing and promoting clusters and clustering in the logistics industry of Turkey. In this regard, the current situation of logistics centers in Turkey has been investigated, and by comparing with the best practices in logistics clustering in the world, the importance of port-centric clustering has been emphasized. Finally, considering the proposed model in the literature and by benefiting current and ongoing logistics center investments a port-centric hierarchical logistics clustering model has been proposed via heuristic decision technique. Keywords: Logistics; clustering; logistics clusters; ports; port-centric logistics; competitive power.
