Abstract: The ports in developing countries have grown by leaps and bounds. Different causes (of market, technical, economic, financial or political) were the origin of that irregular growth, derived from exogenous and endogenous factors. There will be an intense task bound to take advantage of the idle existing infrastructures, which will require a considerable intelectual and imaginative effort that must be analyzed case by case. Operation and maintenance must be adequate to the degree of local development relegating, in certain cases, the most sophisticated technologies.
