Conclusions for Container Port Security
The aim of this book was to analyse the impacts of the CSI programme on EU container seaport competition. In order to achieve this aim, five objectives were developed in Chapter 1. Research Objectives 1 and 2 and partial Objectives 3 and 4 were addressed in the literature reviews (Chapters 2 and 3) and conceptual model development process (Chapter 4). In order to fully achieve Objectives 3, 4, and 5, a Delphi survey was conducted to collect primary data to test the conceptual model and a further model was developed based on the Delphi findings and secondary data. This chapter will explain each objective in detail.
