Here was my initial Short Sea… post.  I love the concept, but I’m not a fan of the label “short sea shipping.”  To play with it a bit, given the English language tendency to make it an abbreviation, how about SSS as “seriously smart shipping” or “ship to shore service”  or only slightly changed “short seashipping.”

The idea is that containers, once in the megaport, move from there to smaller subports via barge, keeping lots of truck traffic from congesting the roadways AND

saving fuel and money.  A new twist could be to put the

trucks/tractors themselves on the barge,

although I’m guessing this is something different.  Nevertheless,

huzzah for short sea trucking.  Tugs here were Cape Cod (made up with the barge) and Turecamo Girls, assist.
