Network Structure as an Enabler for Efficient Knowledge Transfer in Seaports

Background:
Network structure plays an important role in the knowledge transfer among different organizations and entities (Reagans and McEvily 2003, p. 245). Different actors within a network can solve different, but interconnected problems (Lazer and Friedman 2007, p. 689). Strong ties within the network increases the degree of cooperation and visibility among its members. Therefore, knowledge transfer can utilize the network structure to strengthen the cooperation among stakeholders of a seaport.
