Sjöfarts Tidningen, 22 Sep 2017, online:-
Swedish port association Ostkusthamnar i samverkan (OHS) has voiced a positive view concerning grants to the marine transport sector as stated in the 2018 government budget proposal. The planned investment of SEK 150mn (EUR 15.73mn USD 18.80mn) for an eco-bonus system in the period 2018 to 2021 will enable an increased share of marine transport according to the association. The marine transport sector also welcomes the proposed differentiated kilometre tax for trucks. Due to increased e-commerce and goods transport, collaboration between road and marine transport is needed, according to CEO at Mälarhamnar Carola Alzén.
