Note#42 : Transport maritime en Méditerranée, statut et enjeux

Global seaborne trade volume and demand for shipping services have been in constant. With its strategic location, the Mediterranean hosts an important transit lane and trans- shipment activities for international shipping. It is also a busy traffic area due to Mediterranean seaborne traffic (movement between a Mediterranean port and a port outside the Mediterranean), and short sea shipping activities (connecting two Mediterranean ports).
