With more than 1 200 seaports operating along some 70 000 kilometres of coastline, Europe is one of the densest port regions worldwide. The port sector brings together a broad range of industries, such as petrochemicals, steel, automotive, manufacturing and energy distribution. Ports are also central to the economic activity of maritime businesses such as naval shipyards, marine equipment companies, crane and terminal equipment manufacturers, marine rescue organisations, coastal companies, marine construction firms, dredging companies and naval bases.
