MOSES' main goal is to develop a blue print establishing the detailed criteria and conditions for developing an innovative European network of Motorways of the Sea (MoS) as part of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). Today short sea shipping and intermodal transport have a market share of European transport of 43% and 9% respectively. There is still ample spare capacity for these more environment-friendly transport modes and the issue is how to increase their market share significantly so that the objectives of the Commissions reviewed Transport White Paper can be reached.
