The Baltic Ports Organisation (BPO) was established in 1991 in Copenhagen, after the fall of the Berlin wall and the demise of the Soviet Union, with the aim to facilitate co-operation between the ports and to take care of the possibilities for shipping in the Baltic Sea region.
Currently 45 of the most significant ports in the nine countries surrounding the Baltic Sea as well as seven friendship members are organised in the BPO.
The main objective for the BPO is to improve the competitiveness of maritime transport in the Baltic region by increasing the efficiency of ports, marketing the Baltic region as the strategic logistics centre, improving the infrastructure within the ports and the connection to other modes of transport.
