Why does shortsea loose market share in Norway?

Import to Norway by short sea in containers is loosing market share to import by truck.
- Half a million trucks to Norway each year
Globally, 90 % of all cargo freight is transported by ship, while for Norway, sea transport only represents 40 %.
Norwegian container volumes - 2nd quarter of 2012
The container volume increased by two percent compared to the same quarter in 2011. Ports around the Oslofjord did best.
A fruitfull port investment
One Norwegian container port has invested heavily by Norwegian standards. Last year it become the second largest port in Norway.
