The EU is failing to take advantage of its port and shipping sector potential

MEP Michael Cramer (Greens/EFA, DE), chair of the European Parliament's transport and tourism committee, is calling for enhanced cross-border cooperation of ports as well as develop smart concepts for macro-regions such as the Mediterranean sea, the Baltic sea, the North sea and the Black sea, as well as the Atlantic ocean. Europe's geographic situation offers a unique competitive advantage for our seaports. Worldwide there is no comparable economic area, where the conglomeration of seaports and the average distance of ports to final destination markets are as relatively short as in Europe.
