Competitiveness of seaports is a complex issue. It may be viewed from the level of the whole region, the port itself as well as an individual port enterprise. To assess competitiveness of a port, four elements should be accounted for: evaluation of competitiveness potential, identification of factors of competitive advantage, indication of instruments of competing, and evaluation of the port's competitive position. The article discusses the individual stages of the port's competitiveness assessment and proposes adequate factors and metrics of competitiveness. On that basis, competi­tiveness of the Bulk Cargo-Port Szczecin enterprise was evaluated.
