Event description

Description

We have organised a short targeted seminar on Thursday 29 November to discuss coastal shipping in the UK. We are aware of the importance of niche routes and possible new markets which would help to sustain and grow coastal shipping between regions around the UK.

As mentioned in the Department for Transport’s Port Connectivity Study, coastal shipping is a potentially underused domestic freight mode. Waterborne freight transport can also provide environmental benefits and can reduce road congestion as well, which could play a major role in helping the UK reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.

The seminar will provide a platform for individual ports to highlight what they have been doing, and for shipping companies and freight operators to discuss their business needs and aims. We will also be looking at the policy and grants framework and whether the current systems are sufficient.

If you are interested in attending could you please register by completing this form. The seminar will be held at BPA’s offices (30 Park Street, London) and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
