Abstract

The connectivity index reveals the level of accessibility that a country / port has in relation to transport networks. It is measured through the maritime connections it has and is a basic tool to know the levels of trade facilitation and the degrees of global insertion. In the Galician ports, the high level of specialization of the port of Vigo stands out, while the others register much smaller movements. In the case of Portugal, the ports of Sines and Leixoes stand out, as they polarize containerized traffic and the scales of vessels that make up the current global supply chains.
