The case study of the Port of Aalborg is in the middle of focus in this thesis, which seeks to answer the question of how the networking activities of the Port of Aalborg have potentials for sustainable solutions. The paper mainly focuses of the networking activities of the harbour. Qualitative interviews are used as a tool for gathering information, not just from the Port of Aalborg but also from five of its most important business partners (companies and networks as well). Based on the networking theory, the analysis focuses on the actor bonds, activity links and resource ties of the harbour. The results show that the Port of Aalborg participates actively in networking; it has strong collaboration with its partners. Although networking is not consciously used as a tool for achieving sustainability it has great potentials for the future.
