Abstract: To identify the impacts of both port relocation and agglomeration effects on the spatial patterns of basic shipping service industries, a multimethodological framework was employed to identify maritime clusters, the colocation patterns between pairs of shipping service industries, and the determinants of the (re)location of shipping service firms. Taking Dalian Port as a case study, the firm-level (re)location data of 6 types of shipping services were collected and analysed. The results showed that although a maritime cluster appeared around the new port area, no significant colocation patterns were found, and the shipping service firms preferred the existing maritime cluster to the new port area.
