Duration: May 2007 – June 2010
MOSES’ main goal is to develop a blueprint establishing the detailed criteria and conditions for developing an innovative European network of Motorways of the Sea (MoS) as part of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T).
Today short sea shipping and intermodal transport have a market share of European transport of 43% and 9% respectively. There is still ample spare capacity for these more environment-friendly transport modes and the issue is how to increase their market share significantly so that the objectives of the Commission’s reviewed Transport White Paper can be reached.
MOSES will develop an operational framework within which effective MoS can be successfully established and promoted and within which all stakeholders – ports & port services, ship operators, truck operators, network managers, exporters / importers and regional governments – can have beneficial participation and commitment. MOSES will also include policy recommendations to achieve a successful implementation.
