#S43 Sustainable Development of Cruise Port Locations (GREEN CRUISE PORT)

PA Transport – Improving internal and external transport links

The Baltic Sea Region shows a dynamic cruise shipping development and thus strong internal and external passenger traffic flows. The cruise shipping sector has grown enormously in the last decade and for the medium to long-term future further growth is estimated. Consequently the environmental and socio-economic impacts of border crossing traffic will also increase. Planning and guiding the fast growth in the cruise sector in a strategic, sustainable manner is indispensable. This will help to facilitate efficient and sustainable Baltic passenger (and freight) transport solutions

The GREEN CRUISE PORT main project aims to develop and implement sustainable and environmentally friendly infrastructure solutions for cruise ports and their hinterland connections in the Baltic Sea Region. A prefeasibility study will form an important component of the seed money project. The study will focus on identifying investment needs and measures for sustainable and innovative port facilities for cruise shipping, considering latest and future market developments.
