On June 11th, the Providence Waterfront Charrette hosted a session on “Waterfront Industry Trends,” which included presentations by experts on short sea shipping and other emerging shipping techniques. Below are renderings of what a short sea operation might look like in the Port of Providence. The images depict a roll-on-roll off operation as well as a transload lift-on-lift-off facility.

Providence Working Waterfront Alliance member Sprague Energy currently operates a transload lift-on-lift off operation in Portland, Maine. If properly protected and promoted, the Port of Providence would be well situated to attract a similar operation.
