How can inland and coastal shipping be used to a greater extent? How can a logistics concept be designed that could be realized? What is required and in what way do different actors need to take the initiative? These questions were discussed during a seminar in Gothenburg, Sweden on 15 October. The seminar was organised as part of Interreg North Sea region IWTS 2.0 project by SSPA in collaboration with Lighthouse.
