CLECAT comments on EU Ports Policy Review
CLECAT has published its views on the ongoing consultation regarding a ports policy review in the EU.
In view of the important role that ports play, as facilitator of an overall seamless multimodal network, CLECAT welcomes the Commission's recent initiatives aimed at reviewing EU ports policy. To that end, we look forward to contributing to the new consultation that invites stakeholders to provide input in assessing the direction and necessary measures needed for future developments in this policy area. By addressing the abovementioned bottlenecks, brought on through certain inefficiencies and non-competitive structures within ports, we will be able to come one step closer to revitalising the European economy and facilitating fair and open competition in this important freight transport sector.
