Maritime Transport is of great importance for the functioning of society. A large part of foreign trade goes by sea and the integration of maritime transport in the EU transport system has evolved over the years. There are still a number of challenges that maritime transport has to meet in order to further strengthen its competitiveness and thus contribute to more efficient transport solutions for transport buyers. In order to increase competitiveness, reduce environmental impact, improve accessibility and improve the safety and preparedness in the Baltic region, the EU has adopted a regional strategy for the Baltic Sea region. Maritime transport has a central role in the strategy. The Motorways of the Sea concept can be seen as the maritime dimension in the trans-European transport network (TEN-T) and contributes with both co-financing as well as a platform for increased collaboration between governments, industry and academia.
