Ro-Ro Shipping


Tuesday 23rd - Wednesday 24th February 2010


With approximately 22% of tonnage of the current inter- European traffic coming through short
sea shipping from the ports of Dover, Calais, Lubeck, Zeebrugge and Immingham using Ro-Pax
ships and ferry services, there is certainly a growing need to assess whether the future lies with
unaccompanied Ro-Ro and container services, or with Ro-Pax?

Lloyd's Maritime Academy are pleased to present this newly researched high profile seminar on
Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax shipping which will analyse the operational concerns and technical
innovation and developments in Ro-Ro / Ro-Pax terminals and vessels.

You will have the opportunity of sharing the views and experiences of leading industry experts.
They will address some key questions including

• Have we reached full integration with the door-to-door supply chain?

• What are the requirements to achieve higher port efficiency and good hinterland

and green means of shipping via short routes?
