Dynamiques du transport maritime en Baltique orientale

Abstract : The years between independence of the Baltic States and European enlargement bore witness to substantial structural changes on the Baltic coasts. The harbor industry did not escape from this necessary reorganization, all the more so as its role is essential to the economies of the region. The ports bear witness to the Baltic nations’ rapid recovery and neighboring Russia’s difficulty in passing to a market economy. While, with the development of container and ferry transport, the ports of the region are now integrated into the world maritime organization, their specificity lies in the large scale of Russian transit, particularly of petroleum products, without which most would go under. There is strong competition. It is the main causes of the spatial reorganization of regional maritime traffic and its concentration in the Gulf of Finland. The port range has significantly changed, economically opening up to the world using its regional and North-European relations.
