The continuous growth in world economy, technology, and population still shapes the industrialization patterns. This massive progress have also shaped the international transportation requirements. Ports, as the one of the important infrastructure in international transportation and supply chains, have been pushed by these changes in terms of structuring their capacities to satisfy the demand. This study aims to systematically analyse port capacity literature regarding perspectives of researchers. To do this, this study adopted systematic literature review and content analysis together. Keywords were determined in the study and searched in databases without time limit and the obtained studies classified and evaluated by content analysis to find out the advances of the port capacity domain. Also, the research streams were analysed thematically and future research avenues were provided. The result of this study showed that, the most attracted topics are service level and performance in performance main category; development and planning in “capacity planning” main category; cost and investment topic in “cost and economic analysis” main category; demand and forecasting subcategories in “forecasting and market analysis” main category. Besides, this study suggests future research avenues in port capacity literature
