Including maritime emissions in the EU Emissions Trading System marks a significant shift for the maritime logistics industry.
September 18, 2023

As part of ongoing efforts to combat climate change, the European Union (EU) has extended the Emissions Trading System (ETS) to include CO2 emissions from all large ships entering EU ports. Starting in January 2024, this move will hold shipping companies accountable for their carbon footprint, fostering energy efficiency and incentivizing low-carbon solutions within the maritime logistics industry.

Inclusion of Maritime Emissions in the EU ETS:

In May 2023, the EU officially adopted amendments to the ETS Directive and the Regulation on the Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) for maritime transport. These amendments will integrate maritime emissions into the ETS, encompassing 50% of emissions from voyages starting or ending outside the EU and 100% of emissions between two EU ports or when ships are within EU ports. This step will apply to all large ships of 5,000 gross tonnage and above, irrespective of their flag.

Transition Period and Compliance:

To facilitate a smooth transition, shipping companies will gradually be required to surrender emission allowances for a portion of their reported emissions:

  • In 2025, they have to surrender allowances for 40% of their emissions reported in 2024.
  • In 2026, the percentage will increase to 70% for emissions reported in 2025.
  • From 2027 onwards, they must surrender allowances for 100% of their reported emissions.

Impact on the Maritime Logistics Industry:

  • Compliance Costs and Financial Implications: Companies will face extra expenses as they are now required to purchase and sell emission allowances. In order to stay within their allotted allowances, substantial capital investments will be necessary for the adoption of emission-reducing technologies and sustainable fuel alternatives.
  • Operational Adjustments: Shipping companies must optimize vessel routes, reduce idle times, and adopt slow steaming practices to align with emission reduction targets. This will require careful planning and coordination to maintain the efficiency and effectiveness of supply chain logistics.
  • Market Competitiveness and Differentiation: Companies embracing sustainable practices will gain a competitive edge as eco-conscious customers and businesses are increasingly prioritizing environmentally responsible shipping solutions.
  • Collaboration and Information Sharing: Close collaboration with authorities, port operators, and stakeholders will help ensure accurate emission reporting and progress monitoring.


Including maritime emissions in the EU Emissions Trading System marks a significant shift for the maritime logistics industry. While compliance with the regulation will present challenges, it also creates opportunities for the sector to embrace sustainability, foster innovation, and collaborate effectively to contribute to a greener future.

In a bold move to address the need for reducing carbon emissions in the shipping industry, the International Maritime Organization introduced groundbreaking regulations concerning energy efficiency and carbon intensity for all ships.
September 12, 2023

In a bold move to address the need for reducing carbon emissions in the shipping industry, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) introduced groundbreaking regulations concerning energy efficiency and carbon intensity for all ships. These measures require ships to calculate their attained Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) to determine energy efficiency and to initiate data collection to report their annual operational carbon intensity indicator (CII) and CII rating. 

Understanding the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI):

The EEXI is a score given to ships based on their energy efficiency. Ships attained EEXI will be compared to a required EEXI based on an applicable reduction factor expressed as a percentage relative to the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) baseline. Each ship's calculated attained EEXI value must be below the required EEXI to meet the minimum energy efficiency standard. 

Exploring the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) Rating:

The CII is set to rank and monitor the carbon efficiency of each vessel concerning the cargo carried, and the distance traveled. The actual annual operational CII achieved must be documented and verified against the required annual operational CII, allowing the operational carbon intensity rating to be determined. The rating ranges from A to E (where A is the best), and the threshold requirements will become stricter year over year.


  • Environmental Benefits: The primary goal of these IMO regulations is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). By measuring and monitoring energy efficiency, shipping companies can identify areas for improvement and optimize their operations to minimize carbon footprints.
  • Technological Advancements: These regulations will encourage the development and adopting of cleaner technologies within the maritime sector, fostering innovation and creating a demand for sustainable solutions.


  • Compliance Costs: Implementing the EEXI and CII measures will require investments in ship upgrades, retrofitting, and enhanced operational practices. For shipowners and operators, this could pose a significant financial challenge, particularly for older vessels.
  • Disruptions to Shipping Schedules and Supply Chains: As the cost of technological advancements is high, ships implement fuel-saving measures like slow-steaming, which can lead to longer transit times, affecting the predictability and reliability of cargo delivery.
  • Data Collection and Reporting: The accurate measurement and reporting of a vessel's carbon intensity require reliable data collection systems. Shipowners must adapt to new reporting standards and overcome potential technical barriers in gathering and transmitting data.


Implementing the Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index (EEXI) and Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) measures marks a significant step towards reducing carbon emissions in the shipping industry. While they offer environmental benefits, they also present challenges, including compliance costs and potential disruptions to shipping schedules. Collaboration among stakeholders, technological advancements, and regulatory support are crucial to navigating these challenges.

Electric vehicle charging.
August 16, 2023

In a display of cross-functional teamwork, several internal teams at JAS worked closely to execute a seamless transportation operation. The collaborative effort aimed to transport a large number of Lithium-Ion Batteries (UN 3480, Class 9) from Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) to Frankfurt Airport (FRA), supporting a leading European Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) producing electric vehicles (EV).


The automotive landscape is transitioning towards sustainable solutions, with electric vehicles leading the way. However, sourcing the necessary components, such as Lithium-Ion Batteries, often poses significant logistical challenges due to their hazardous nature, requiring compliance with stringent regulations and safety protocols. A leading OEM in Europe required a substantial shipment of batteries from the US to support its EV production. Blue World Atlantic charter flight operations presented an opportunity to avoid relying on a market yielding minimal results with minimum quantities per flight.

JAS's Response: 

Recognizing the urgency and importance of the situation, the JAS teams quickly created a plan. The batteries were carefully packed, labeled, and documented in accordance with local and global regulations. Additionally, a plan using JAS' existing Blue World Atlantic weekly charter was organized, allowing for direct transportation and minimizing the risk associated with intermediate stops. 

Results and Impact: 

After taking over the project as airlines simultaneously announced embargoes on cargo containing Lithium-Ion Batteries, the team successfully transported the Lithium-Ion Batteries on JAS Blue World Atlantic weekly charter, allowing the customer's supply chain to remain uninterrupted.

Under the best of circumstances, supply chain management can be a complex process. It can be even more complicated during the tropical storm season when the risk of monsoons, typhoons, and hurricanes peaks.
June 1, 2023

June 1 marks the start of tropical storm season, a time when managing supply chains becomes more challenging due to the heightened risk of monsoons, typhoons, and hurricanes. These adverse weather events can result in high winds and flooding, leading to supply chain delays and disruptions. However, businesses can implement measures and take proactive steps to minimize these risks and help keep their supply chains moving.

  • One critical step is to assess a supply chain's potential risks and vulnerabilities. By identifying which suppliers and transportation routes are most likely to be affected by tropical storms and ensuring that backup plans are in place, supply chains are less likely to be disrupted if severe weather occurs.
  • Prioritizing freight can help prevent further disruptions. Severe weather can cause airport and port closures and they may reopen with limited capacity and backlogs. Knowing which freight is most important can help prevent further disruptions.
  • Diversifying transportation routes can help ensure a company is not overly reliant on any one supplier or transportation mode, reducing the risk of disruptions if a tropical storm impacts a particular supplier or route.
  • Proactively monitoring the weather during tropical storm season is vital. It allows businesses to stay well-informed of impending severe weather that might impact shipment delivery. While forecasts change at a moment’s notice, being aware of the weather forecast and any precautionary measures taken locally, such as port and airport closures and shelter-in-place orders, is essential.
  • In the event of severe weather, maintaining supply chain visibility and real-time access to information about paused and canceled shipments is vital. By maintaining supply chain visibility, you can more easily identify potential problems, allowing you to make early and informed decisions that can help keep your supply chains running smoothly.
  • Maintaining communication with service providers is essential, and it's crucial to ensure they know which cargo is highest priority and receive early warning about needed shipments. This helps reduce delays caused by canceled flights and closed ports, resulting in reduced capacity.

With tropical storm season upon us, it is important to be prepared for whatever disruptions severe weather might bring. Whether it is developing a contingency plan long before severe weather hits or rerouting cargo and utilizing air cargo options when severe weather occurs, JAS can help keep your supply chain running smoothly. Contact your local JAS office to ensure your supply chain is ready for the upcoming season.
