Sea highways – Short Sea Shipping
The port of Naples, defined as one of the best ports in Italy and one of the most important ports in the Mediterranean, is the undisputed leader for coastal navigation in the widest sense. While sea transport in the Mediterranean Sea is forecast to increase by between 7% and 9% per year, the port of Naples has seen a large increase in the coastal navigation sector in the last 4 years, with exceptionally significant developments for the Sea highways, where the lines for Sicily represent 49% of the entire sector in Italy. There has also been a substantial boost in short sea shipping, a form of transport which is not only cheaper and more efficient but also more suitable for serving peripheral areas and multimodal transport and more destinations will be lined to Naples in the next few years.
