Core ports in TEN-T reviewed

Date: 14/03/2011

At an informal meeting in Budapest earlier this month the European Commission has put forward its own criteria which ports ought to meet in order to qualify as a "core port" in the TEN-T network. All seaports handling at least 1‰ of the total volume of cargo in the sector concerned, both bulk and non-bulk, are included in the comprehensive freight network. In order to qualify as a "primary node" a volume of 1% of the total cargo handled in the EU ports has to be met, in the absence of port clusters. Ports can possibly also qualify as "secondary node" provided they meet certain other criteria. The aim is to connect the "motorways of the sea" to said "primary ports"
