PROPOSSE paper presented at World Conference on Transport Research...
While short sea shipping is one of the oldest forms of transporting cargo, in recent years it has been largely superseded in Europe by an all conquering road transport system. Yet a judicious use of short sea shipping routes can deliver cost benefits.
Alternative options for Short Sea Shipping Routes...
The transport of goods between the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe is predominantly via Dover and Calais, and this route currently attracts over 80% of the traffic. Irish hauliers consistently use the roads in Wales and England as a land bridge to Dover. But there are alternatives into mainland Europe via the western channel ports, Portsmouth, Poole and Plymouth.
PROPOSSE project overview...
PROPOSSE is an EU co-funded Interreg project within the framework of the Transnational Cooperation Programme Atlantic Area 2007-2013.
Marine South East and the Port of Poole are representing the UK as partners in the recently launched PROPOSSE short-sea shipping project.
The aim is to look at creating effective new short-sea shipping routes between the participating regions.
