ESPO represents the seaports of the Member States of the European Union and has observer members from several other European countries.

The European Union simply cannot function without its seaports. Almost all of the Community’s external trade and almost half of its internal trade enters or leaves through the more than 1200 seaports existing in the 20 maritime Member States of the EU.

Without seaports, the European Union would not exist as an economic world power. Without seaports, there would be no internal market.

ESPO ensures that seaports have a clear voice in the European Union.
