European Shortsea network yearbook 2011

Date: 12/04/2012

In 1997 the first national Shortsea Promotion Centre was founded in the Netherlands. Soon other European countries followed. Due to the nature of Shortsea shipping, it soon became clear that the promotion of the shortsea transport sector on a national basis was not enough to meet the requirements for a significant enhancement of this transport mode. By the end of 2000 there were a sufficient number of countries, which had set up a shortsea promotion centre and the European Shortsea Network was finally established.

The main objectve of the European Shortsea Network (ESN) is to promote shortsea in the broadest sense of the word on a European level.

ESN is organized as a network with rotating chairmanship that follows the country that chairs the European Council. Accordingly, the chairman co-ordinates the common activities and development of the network, for a limited period of 6 months.
