ESPO Position regarding the ongoing evaluation of the Consortia Block Exemption

07 November 2023

The European Commission is currently in the process of evaluating the Consortia Block Exemption Regulation (hereafter “Consortia Regulation”), the only sectoral exemption under EU competition regulations, which is due to expire on 25 April 2024. In light of this evaluation, the European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO) calls upon the Commission to carry out its important task of ensuring a European legislative framework that safeguards and allows for fair competition and a level playing field in the maritime and logistics sector.
