What is short sea shipping? 

Short sea shipping is just a modern term for what used to be called coastal shipping. It concerns freight transport over water over shorter distances, so within Europe for Seacon Logistics, and from door to door in combination with other services. Ideal for full loads (FTL) and heavy goods. Short sea shipping is an increasingly popular alternative to road freight and rail transport. It can also operate between ports in the same country, for example in Italy, Sweden or England.
