e-Maritime

The EU e-Maritime initiative aims to foster the use of advanced information technologies for working and doing business in the maritime transport sector.

The EU e-Maritime envisages promoting interoperability in its broader sense. It aims to stimulate coherent, transparent, efficient and simplified solutions in support of cooperation, interoperability and consistency between Member States and transport operators.

Maritime transport administrative procedures are complex, time-consuming and, even today, are often done on paper. Major European ports have advanced information systems, which deliver considerable quality and efficiency gains.

However, the interoperability between port information systems is practically non-existent limiting the potential for new services and economies of scale.
