Malaysian Inland Ports: A Blueprint for Dyadic Collaboration Between Seaports and Inland Ports provides substantial evidence on symbiotic relationship between seaport and inland ports or dry ports in Malaysian case.
The ambidextrous concept of seaports and inland terminals offers a comprehensive perspective for Malaysian trade growth. The link between these two nodes must be strengthened in order to glorify the nation's economy. Furthermore, the marine industry revolution has become the primary cause for seaports and dry ports complementing each other to promote regional economic growth toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Sustainable dry ports have emerged as an important node in ensuring regional sustainability in the global trade.
This blueprint gives important information on the rise of dry ports in the seaport system. The goal is to establish a symbiotic relationship between seaports and dry ports capable of feeding the economic growth of the country through imposing regional development, enhancing seaport competitiveness, promoting the use of intermodalism, and educating policymakers.
This blueprint can be used as a foundation for developing new policies or restructuring existing ones, as a guideline for academic researchers to investigate the concept of dry ports/inland ports in the seaport system, and to assist stakeholders in carrying out their strategic plans for Malaysia's growth as a notable maritime nation.
