Short sea shipping (SSS) operations is still new to so many people, thus the reason why this research topic was chosen. In this research work, we studied the identification of some of the main problems that has made this concept not well known and accepted.

Here, we explored short sea shipping operations as could be obtainable in Nigeria whilst also taking into review the concept as practiced in many developed countries of the world. Without doubt, short sea shipping facilitates economies of scale and just-in-time deliveries of goods and services.

In the analysis which was carried out using the chi-square method, it was revealed that the viability of short sea shipping were very significant in efficiency and saving of cost while reducing air pollution caused by trucks in cargo delivery in Nigeria.

This research work examined the impact of short sea shipping on the nation’s economy to ascertain whether it could be adopted or not.  Data (primary and secondary) was collected by means of questionnaires, published and unpublished materials and analyzed using the chi-square (X²) data analysis method, using very suitable hypothesis. Summary, conclusion and recommendations were then drawn up at the end of the research.
