Blue Belt: Commission eases customs formalities for ships


Shipping within
the EU is not reaching its full potential – mainly due to considerable
administrative requirements which cost time and money and make shipping less
attractive than other modes of transport.

The ‘Blue Belt' initiative will
provide seaborne transport with a true internal market without barriers, where
vessels and cargo can move between EU ports with minimum administrative controls,
while at the same time still meeting the requirements for safety, security and
customs. The ‘Blue Belt' will ease custom formalities for ships – reducing red
tape, cutting delays in ports and making the sector more competitive.
