Unifeeder criticizes EU short sea policy

There are plenty of players in the North European short sea market already, says Niels Kjær-Richardt, who is the Director of the Unifeeder Short Sea Division. For this reason, the EU should use its subsidy funds differently in the future, he tells ShippingWatch.

North European short sea shipping is one of the main points in the EU maritime strategy, which is meant to ensure that more cargo in the future is taken off the roads and put onto ships. But the EU should put serious though into it before pumping more cash into short sea, says Niels Kjær-Richardt, who is the Director of the Unifeeder Short Sea Division.

This is because there are currently plenty of players in the market to handle the cargo, he says. Meanwhile it takes quite a lot to be a dedicated short sea player and make money at the same time.
