NSP - Future
Start date: Nov 29, 2005,
End date: Dec 30, 2006
The project builds on the work, which has been undertaken through the Interreg IIIB project REMARCC II. The overall concept of the project is to undertake research to analyse the role of North Sea ports in Maritime logistics and on the future challenges for ports. In order to achieve this project will look at two services that ports offer for maritime logistics. The first being the challenges and threats deriving from an increase in vessel sizes and the second considers the additional added value services in the logistics sector. Achievements: The project NSP Future analysed the role of North Sea ports in Maritime Logistic as well as the identified future challenges that ports have to cope with in order to maintain their role in the whole logistic chain. The project results consist of ten reports.The project has developed an approach for strategic policy for the North Sea Region for analysing and identifying the possibilities for attracting value added services in the logistic sector in port regions. The results from the NSP Future project show the framework condition where the NSR ports are moving themselves in terms of vessel size development, feeder service networks, infrastructure requirements, and logistical requirements from international supply chains.Based on this situation challenges were identified that need to be met by the ports and the concerned regions in order to sustain competitiveness and efficiency in terms of economical, social and environmental issues.
