​ABSTRACT

Limited intraregional trade within ASEAN despite its free-trade agreement
existing for nearly a quarter century has prompted increased attention in
maritime transport as a previously neglected trade facilitation issue. In
particular, the lack of connectivity of several locales in maritime
Southeast Asia has been identified as a key impediment. This article
discusses the logic for introducing roll-on/roll-off vessels in addressing
transport challenges of regional hinterlands given their salient geographic
and political-economic conditions. In so doing, the concept of ‘transport
subsidiarity’ is elaborated upon to account for the delegation of
responsibilities among local-level public and private actors in relation to
national governments of members states and ASEAN itself for enabling
regular ferry services that promise to benefit previously isolated locales
in this archipelagic region.
