The article discusses the problem of hinterland services of port cargoes in the case when the port is located inside an urban agglomeration. The research was conducted for the Port of Szczecin with regard to the planned extension of the container terminal. The research included technical and operational as well as environmental and economic criteria for three investment options developed by the authors. Investment solutions are intended to provide efficient unitized cargo handling to and from the port within the agglomeration area, which entails its integration with the specific urban traffic. The research findings will result in putting forward recommendations for large port cities transport infrastructure development strategies corresponding with the priorities of sustainable transport.
