The texts studied in this paper show that the extent of the commercial and political relationships between Ugarit and the Phoenician cities, particularly Tyre, was far superior to that of the ties with the Southern Levantine sea-ports. However, the importance of the commercial ties between Ugarit and Ashdod may be de fined using the written sources. In fact, if our interpretation of RS 19.96 is correct, the intensity of the contacts between both cities even led to the establishment of an Ashdodite merchant station in Ugarit, from which their commercial affairs were structured. Les textes étudiés dans le présent article montrent la façon dont Ugarit avait maintenu des rélations commerciales et politiques avec les royaumes phéniciens, spécialement avec Tyr. Ces rélations furent plus intenses que celles maintenues avec les ports du sud du Levant. De toute façon, ces textes constatent les liens commerciaux trés etroit qui auraient existé entre Ugarit et Ashdod. De fait, si nôtre interprétation de RS 19.96 est correcte, l'intensité des contacts entre les deux villes aboutit à l'établissement d'une station commerciale d'Ashdod à Ugarit, station qui fut chargée d'organiser ces relations commerciales.
