Competing Transportation Chains in Helsinki-Tallinn Route: Multi-Dimensional Evaluation (2012)

Hilmola, Olli-Pekka

The purpose of this research is to sketch some multi-dimensional evaluation from the alternatives of Helsinki-Tallinn general cargo transportation flows.

In the near future, a very strict sulphur oxide emission regulation will come into effect, and some sort of payment system will be developed for the CO2 emissions of sea transports. Together with increasing price of oil, this will considerably change transportation chains within Baltic Sea area and will increase the importance of very short sea shipping alternatives e.g. from Finland. Future solutions are hardly the same as before – business decisions are increasingly based on ecologic-economic tightly coupled relationship.
