The present thesis deals with the existence of concentration in inland terminals. More specifically, the Hamburg - Le Havre range, one of the most competitive port areas in Europe and worldwide, is being examined. Analyzing the historical evolution of ports, we see their transition from simple loading and unloading centers to global distribution networks. Due to the steadily increasing volume of cargo through ports as well as the capacity problems in them, inland terminals have been the ideal solution. Both the increasing importance of ports and their inland terminals lead many market players to try to gain a share of them. In order to prove the existence of concentration in inland terminals, the concentration being tested in ownership level and service level. The method used is based on secondary data, data from websites and databases, which are recorded and analyzed.
