ABSTRACT
The author of this article explains the impacts on the pan-European transportation sector and supply chains by the latest developments in the former East Germany, as of March 2002. It was on September 2001 that Achim Grossman, Berlin Central Government state secretary, told a regional planning conference that an integrated transport route network is one of the biggest challenges for the future development of the Baltic region. Of the four main former East Germany Baltic ports, only Rostock was not left totally out on alimb after unifciation in 1990The port management announced a new investment program designed to turn the port into the most modern logistic center on the German baltic coast. The latest investment will force the further growth of lucrative ferry and roll-on/roll-off business, which totalled nine million tons in 2000 and was expected to top ten million tons last year.
