Logistics competitiveness and economic development in the Mediterranean countries

The aim of this paper is to analyze the competitiveness of the logistics of the countries lining the Mediterranean shores. Maritime traffic in this area has more than doubled from 2000 to 2013 by virtue of its centrality to the flow of goods travelling along the east-west routes through the Suez Canal and for those heading north-south using the Short Sea Shipping. The most important research institutions confirm the growth trend for the next few years. This paper aims at evaluating the logistics competitiveness of the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea in the light of the drivers which are shaping the evolution of shipping, of naval gigantism and the large shipping companies’ alliances, as well as the policy of some countries to enrich their offer with Special Economic Zones.

This report is extracted from the SRM’s 4th Annual Report on “Economic relations between Italy and the Mediterranean area – November 2014″.

Logistics relations between Italy and the Mediterranean

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

Starting in the early 1990s, the role played by the Mediterranean in the main maritime traffic routes has progressively strengthened. Nowadays, the Mediterranean Sea is crossed by 19% of the world’s entire maritime traffic: around 1.4 billion tonnes of goods; 30% of world oil and almost two-thirds of all the other energy resources en route to Italy and to the other European countries transit through the Mediterranean, including those transported by underwater pipelines. In this context, the aim of re-launching Italy as the strategic axis of traffic within the Mediterranean, is achievable: The Med Area absorbs around 8% of Italian exports (more than the United States); total import-export trade between Italy and Mediterranean countries increased strongly in the 2000-2012 period (+86.8%) and these flows travel almost exclusively by sea (almost 70%). On the “supply” side, the South Shore of the Mediterranean is experiencing a phase of renewal: If until a decade ago the ports located on the South Shore played a marginal role in deep-sea maritime services, the development of transhipment terminals, first in Egypt and then in Morocco, has marked the entry of these countries in the container traffic management market.

The Mediterranean Basin: traffic and logistics flows

The report focuses on the transport and logistics sector across the Mediterranean. Italy, and specifically Southern Italy, has the possibility of exploiting its favourable geographic position and well-established sea-faring tradition, and to claim its natural role as a logistics platform at the centre of the Mediterranean. However, it should be pointed out that this potential needs a logistics market capable of transforming it into real economic and territorial development.
