Chapter 9: Short-distance maritime geographies: short sea shipping, RoRo, feeder and inter-island transport
This chapter focuses on shipping goods short and medium distances, domestically or within an economic region – often referred to as short sea shipping (SSS). It gives an overview of the main SSS segments and particularly elaborates on the two SSS signature segments, roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) shipping and container feeder shipping. Geographically and empirically, the rendering is most detailed for Europe. Trends, prospects and challenges for SSS are explored in a more general context.
