PROPOSSE project overview
PROPOSSE is an EU co-funded Interreg project within the framework of the Transnational Cooperation Programme Atlantic Area 2007-2013.
Marine South East and the Port of Poole are representing the UK as partners in the recently launched PROPOSSE short-sea shipping project.
The aim is to look at creating effective new short-sea shipping routes between the participating regions.
Through extensive interaction with the freight and shipping sector, the project will gather evidence of the need and possible usage levels for such routes. Information gathered will be analysed to help identify the scope for new routes and the likelihood of sufficient ongoing demand.
The project partnership consists of ports and related organisations from Portugal (Aveiro), Spain (Gijón), France (Le Havre), Ireland (Cork) and the United Kingdom.
The initial activities on data collection and analysis of potential short sea shipping routes are underway.
