The factors that contribute to effective cooperation between port administrations and port operators, cargo owners, national and regional governments, as well as municipalities, have been analyzed. The research reviews a model of land concessions, dredging operations and maintenance of declared drafts, hinterland development policy, trade facilitation, and policies for procargo-generating activities have been researched. The article suggests several recommendations regarding the application of European experience in managing seaports into the activities of the Ukraine’s maritime complex aimed at further the development of port infrastructure.
