Abstract : Most studies of port systems are focused on the national level and present a continental view. Few studies have documented the evolution of port and maritime linkages across a whole maritime basin. So, the concept of maritime regions remains little explored in port and maritime geography. This contribution discusses the specificity of the Mediterranean basin compared with other intermediate maritime regions located along the equatorial round-the-world route (Caribbean basin, East and Southeast Asia), in terms of network configuration and port hierarchies. This paper finally proposes a conceptual and methodological contribution to a better understanding of the "maritime region" in a context of port system reorganization.
