#Shortsea – SeatradeGlobal reports that the European Union is making great efforts to shift freight movements away from land transportation to sea.
Greece's shortsea shipping sector is promoting an ambitious plan to connect shortsea shipping with river transport within, and outside, the EU.
The powerful Hellenic Shortsea Shipowners Association (HSSA) has called on the Greek EU presidency to back a new action plan – Naiades II – mapped out by the European Commission to strengthen inland waterways with the aim to improve the operational, economic and environmental performance of the sector.
In Europe, shortsea shipping is at the forefront of transportation policy. It currently accounts for roughly 40% of all freight moved in Europe and the aim is to increase this. For much more on this story follow this link.
