The purpose of this Master’s Thesis is to analyze the current state of agricultural production in the Greek islands, as well as to explore the prospects of a new agro-logistics hub to support them. Initially, all necessary theoretical concepts related to the agri-food sector and its products are described, as well as concepts of the supply chain and more specifically agrologistics and food supply chains. Subsequently, export data of agricultural products of the Greek islands are analyzed on the basis of value of products and countries of destination, while considering the prospect of establishing a new agrologistics center (hub) to support them and their export countries of destination. In addition, the current situation of the area where the new agrologistics hub will be developed is analyzed, as well as its impacts on producers, consumers, the domestic economy, the environment and, finally, its social impact on the Greek islands and, consequently, on a national level.
