  3. The Problem Strangulation of the Region’s Commercial Highway System • Bi-state highways b/w NJ & NY moved > 250 million vehicles in 2002 • The number of trucks is expected to double in the next 10 years

  4. The Solution Multi-modal integrated transportation system

  5. Short Sea Shipping “The movement of goods and people by vessel without crossing a major ocean”

  6. Short Sea Partners North Atlantic Ports Association US Maritime Administration Coastal Coalition I-95 Corridor Coalition

  7. US Maritime Administration Short Sea Cooperative Program Members US and foreign based governmental and non-governmental involved with ownership, operation, movement, or reception of domestic and/or international cargo or affected by that movement of cargo MA Seaport Council is a SCOOP member

  8. Coastal Coalition Public and Private Organizations Mission Statement To promote the use of coastal waterborne transportation as a safe and environmentally beneficial means of meeting the needs of American shippers, passengers and service providers for cost competitive, reliable transportation, relieving traffic demands on busy and increasingly congested U.S. surface transportation corridors, and supporting a growing national economy.

  10. HM Tax Access Vessels Costs CCF Continuing Hurdles for Short Sea • Large, High Cost Terminals • Few Quick Turn-around Low Cost Operations • Road Access to Terminals • Congestion • Landside Delays MARAD Capital Construction Fund Not Available for Contiguous Trade • No Action by AAPA • Port Canaveral Legislation Needs Support • No SEA 21 • No Jones Act Vessels • Domestic Yards: >40-60% Costs

  11. State Action Needed for Short Sea Characterize the Market for the Ports of Massachusetts • Terminal Access (Land / Water) • Dredging (minor because of shallow draft vessels • Road Networks • Terminal Facilities • Small Municipal Based • Quick Turn Around

  12. Port of New Bedford Port of Fall River Port Canaveral Studies and Research • Components of Massachusetts Study • Short Sea Shipping Models for Smaller Ports • Potential Cargos and Moves • Port Pairing with Port Canaveral • History of Applicable US Short Sea Shipping • US Short Sea Shipping Initiatives • Factors that would Support SSS Fall River/New Bedford • Freight Diversion Model

  13. The Freight Diversion Model The Commonwealth Leads the Way “A Path to Private Investment”
