The study is a continuation of a pre study from 2016 and reviews a series of government reports that deal with the role of shipping as part of the infrastructure. The purpose of the preliminary study is to easily describe various factors that influence how government investments are assessed, to identify differences between different modes of transport, as well as to account for some of the limitations in the assessment basis. Finally, examples are given, where shipping efforts are assessed as socio-economically profitable or potentially profitable.
