Abstract Nowadays, ports have transformed from a purely ship-shore interface into logistical platforms and are also important clusters of economic activities. With this new role, it is critical that port personnel possess necessary competencies to contribute to port efficiency and turn the port into an effective supply chain partner. Despite the importance of this issue, there has been scant research in the literature. In this study, we aim to explore this research issue through a conceptual model of competencies and validated by a survey with port executives both in Vietnam and Taiwan. It was found that port executives need to possess a broad range of competencies relating to business, port and logistics affairs, and management to be successful in the new era.
