The current state of the North Port, part of the Port of Split predetermined for the cargo turnover, shows modest rate traffic. The paper examines if there is a potential for the further development and modernization of the port by integrating the Short Sea Shipping (SSS) services. Analysis regarding the main principles of the SSS concept has been provided for the North Port in order to penetrate and exploit new markets and demands as well as the directions of the future growth, mainly by using intermodal transport services. This implies particularly the revitalization of the Una track and investments in “green” technologies with the purpose of lowering the external costs of transport and positioning on the market as a green port offering lower harbour fees and taxes. With the implementation of new technologies based on sustainable development, eco-friendly mechanization, and port equipment, the North Port could establish new markets positioned in the hinterland and gravitational background of the city of Split and achieve a higher cargo turnover, primarily in the container transport, but also in the other segments of the port business.
