General overview

Estonian Ports Association gathers all active commercial ports in Estonia. Besides those, there are also smaller ports like Lehtma, Mõntu and Loksa ports, which definitely give their contribution to encourage and develope Estonian ports enterprise. Smaller ports also participate in all ports related discussions and proceedings.

There might emerge misleading understanding, that competition for trade volumes does not conduce to constructive cooperation between ports enterprisers. Still, that is not, how Estonian Ports Association builds it’s philosophy.

There are various economic blockades and sanctions in exacerbating economic development, and that is especially present in international traffic, which is undoubtedly part of the Estonian ports.

Ports Association considers it necessary to develop cooperation not only between businesses but to all active ports Estonian logistics cluster companies.

In 2015 joint operations achieved some good results. Official Development Plan establishes the main objectives the promotion of cooperation with public authorities and business organisations.
