The port of Heraklion has an important independent activity of its own, which,however,is not enough to give it a wider role in the Mediterranean area and in international transportation. The limitations of the port are defined by the consummatory and  productive capabilities of the Cretan population.No doubt,there are possibilities for the increase of the productive capabilities  in the raw material sector as well as in the industry that will affect the bulk of exports.

The perspective for the expected development of the consummatory activities of the island is relevant and in this respect the role of the port is limited and marginal,unless its privileged position,in the sea transportation business is taken advantage of, and its activities in transportational  trade are extended.To this end,the port of Heraklion accidentally has great potential in servicing modern craft as far as the port infrastructure facilities are concerned but lacks in administrative organisation ,legal infrastructure and mechanical equipment. Therefore,the port has great possibilities to play an important role in international  transportation due to its geographic position and its existing infrastructure,as well as because of the technological developments in the sector of transportation.It can be a joint for further promotion of trade to secondary routes,with transformation of the products from ships of modern technology ,capability and range of transportation to smaller,traditional  or not,middle or short range,ships for the Mediterranean ports.
