Study highlights present and future maritime traffic flows in the Mediterranean – Aug 06, 2008

In line with Specific Objective 9 of the Regional Strategy for Prevention of and Response to Marine Pollution from Ships, which aims at reducing the risk of collisions by inter alia identifying the main shipping lanes for vessels carrying oil and other hazardous and noxious substances in the Mediterranean Sea, and within the framework of the EU-funded Project “Euromed Cooperation on Maritime Safety and Prevention of Pollution from Ships – SAFEMED (MED 2005/109-573)”, REMPEC has commissioned Lloyd’s Marine Intelligence Unit (LLOYD’S MIU) to prepare a Study on the Traffic Flow Analysis in the Mediterranean Sea. The objective of the Study is to identify and analyse major maritime traffic flows and trends within the Mediterranean Sea using LLOYD’S MIU historical movements databases for the last five to ten years, as appropriate.
