 European Shortsea Network (ESN) meeting was held in Malta with representatives from 11 European countries at the head office of Malta Freeport Terminals, says a report in Times of Malta.

 
The presidency of the European Shortsea Network is currently held by Malta which also hosts the official registration of the European Shortsea Network as a legal entity.
 
The European Shortsea Network is an association made up of 28 European countries with their main objective being that of promoting shortsea shipping in Europe.
 
This network is recognised by the Directorate General of Mobility and Transport of the European Commission whose mission includes the promotion of transport through shortsea shipping. The European Commission acknowledges that transport by sea has the lowest carbon emission and thus is the most environmentally friendly.
 
Recently the Ocean Alliance has chosen Malta Freeport as their central Mediterranean transhipment hub
