​The ports of Stockholm, Tallinn, Helsinki, Naantali and Turku play a key role in the accessibility of the Central Baltic Region. Effective, competitive, eco-friendly, safe port procedures and sea transportation solutions between the five cities, all have a major importance on the trade between the port regions and between the three countries. On a wider scale, the connections between these ports serve a main gateway to international trade.

The PENTA project explores the alternatives of how the five Central Baltic ports together can face and better comprehend the challenges of today and in the future.
By developing cargo and passenger flows development scenarios, the partners create a shared vision about the likely development of cargo and passenger transportation. The project also identifies the ongoing and coming legislative measures and trends that will effect on port procedures and regulative framework. Finally, the ports exchange information on current port practices and create harmonious future practices, specifically related to safety and security procedures, environmental practices and management, and other administrative procedures in ports.
