    The European shipping industry and public administrations in the Member States have invested heavily in achieving a competitive and efficient industry. An efficient maritime transport system, eliminating administrative formalities inside the common European maritime transport area, will boost the internal market. E-maritime, green corridors and other emerging logistical concepts will play an important role in the near future in promoting shipping in Europe.
