Friends of the Earth is hosting a forum on short sea shipping, or regional shipping, at the David Brower Center in Berkeley, CA, on May 25, 2010.  The forum addresses the potential environmental drawbacks and benefits associated with short sea shipping in the San Francisco Bay and along the California coast.  The forum also considers how the maritime and landside sectors involved in goods movement operations, including short sea shipping, can enhance their environmental performance, especially concerning harmful air emissions.
