How can inland and coastal shipping be used to a greater extent? How can a logistics concept be designed that could be realized? What is required and in what way do different actors need to take the initiative? These questions will be discussed during a seminar in Gothenburg, Sweden on 15 October. The seminar is organised as part of Interreg North Sea region IWTS 2.0 project by SSPA in collaboration with Lighthouse.
The Sea Traffic Management (STM) Validation Project was finished this summer and its final report with the project’s results was recently published. SSPA has been a partner in this project, where the SSPA Route Optimisation Service was developed and integrated into the ECDIS through the Maritime Connectivity Platform and tested with the involved partners and ships. Optimising the route has a strong impact on the operational costs for fuel and it is translated into GHG emission savings. Although the project has ended, the SSPA Route Optimisation Service remains active and new initiatives continue.
