Abstract

Seen from a maritime point of view, the Baltic Sea is a narrow and shallow sea basin, being used by at least three basic kinds of freight navigation: 1. freight shipping lines (short and medium distance service within the Baltic Sea), 2. container feeder lines (mainly based on some big ports like Hamburg and Bremerhaven), 3. oil tankers (serving Russian oil export interests). These circles have little connections with one another. The close network of freight lines contributes to intra-Baltic transport integration, whereas the container services mainly establish extra-Baltic integration with several external deep-sea ports on the North Sea coast. Presently, East Asian export boom and Russian oil export wave geographically meet in the Baltic Sea and some of its harbours. - (IfL)
