Geopolitical developments infl uenced and infl uence with dynamic way all the activities in international, regional and local level. Into continuously shaped geopolitical game, the activity of transports and mainly the sea transports constitutes a component that does not have the character of end in itself but means for the promotion of international trade and accordingly in the development and consolidation of international relations between states and in the creation of others. What is more the most rapid and headlong distribution of new technologies as well as the gradual release of international regulating framework constitute catalysts of globalization. The networks of sea transport and transportation penetrate vertical all the horizontal spectrum of geostrategic and all the game of geo-economics consist the art of interaction of lines of these networks with the lines of borders of country where certainly the significance of border becomes perceptible with her bigger possible semantic dimension. The significance of “shrinkage of time and place” diachronically, owed in the rapid developments in the technology of sea transport, can constitute the framework of holistic approach in the process of dynamic character, territorial rearrangement of areas.
