Shipowners surprised by ambitious EU proposal

Both Unifeeder and the Danish Shipowners' Association welcome the European Commission's proposal to reduce the level of bureaucracy in European shipping. The proposal is even more ambitious than the shipowners expected.

It was very much a step in the right direction when the EU Commission on Monday revealed a proposal to reduce the administrative requirements that are currently weighing European shipping down, says the Danish Shipowners' Association.

"This is a very positive proposal, and to be honest, it's more ambitious than we expected. So all we can say is that this is absolutely a step in the right direction. We hope that when the real legislation - especially regarding the e-manifesto - comes, that it'll be as ambitious as this proposal indicates," says Simon Bergulf, head of the Danish Shipowners' Association's office in Brussels, to ShippingWatch.
