Short sea shipping involves a wide range of smaller vessels undertaking coastal activities. With frequent port calls, ships trading short sea routes need to be operated as efficiently as possible. Typically ranging between 1,000 – 20,000 dwt, short sea vessels can be broken down into the following categories:

Tanker designed for the transport of liquids or gases in bulk,
RO-RO / CON-RO designed to carry wheeled cargo,
Feeder container vessels moving boxes from hub ports
Bulkers used to move solid dry commodities
River Tug used as towboat or push boat,
Passenger ship  including ferry and cruise ship for a day or overnight short sea voyage,
Barge, a flat-bottomed vessel for inland shipment.
