Intra-European transport has severe economic and technological requirements. It needs ports, docking points, handling equipment adapted to the vessel used. It requires a high degree of loading, round trip if it is the case of liner voyage, due to high transport capacity. This requires a regular supply of goods, sufficient workforce to ensure loading, suggesting a national organization, and connections with terrestrial platforms. Transhipment must be quick. This paper discusses how launching a new navigation service is expensive and is often done by big ship owners who create their own supply chains. The conditions of Intra-European transport present some difficulties related to the geographical or social particularities that prevent and restrict competition. These problems such as traffic congestion, blockages of activity due to the possibility of strikes, and the rigid organization of labour duration will also be part of the analysis in this paper
