As many shippers within the European countries look for innovative and sustainable transport options for moving goods, short sea shipping can be a practical option.
As many shippers within the European countries look for innovative and sustainable transport options for moving goods, short sea shipping can be a practical option.

Did you know that shipping by shortsea can reduce your overall carbon footprint by as much 80% when compared to traditional road freight?

For those who traditionally use only road freight to move goods across long distances such as between South of Europe and The Nordics and Baltics, short sea shipping can be an innovative and sustainable transport option that can help reduce a shippers overall environmental impact.

With one feeder vessel carrying the equivalent of 500 truckloads of goods, short sea shipping provides great savings in both in terms of cost and CO2 emissions. Furthermore, it can reduce pressure on heavily congested roads helping mitigate issues associated with the truck driver shortage and increasing fuel rates.

With one organization managing all European transport solutions customers have access to one single point of contact designated to managing your flows regardless of transport mode. This opens up a range of alternatives on the same trade lane allowing for tailor-made solutions that best fit your needs.

Our team members are here to help you navigate the maze of different options and provide professional insights, while helping you implement and manage the transport solutions once a decision is taken.

For more information, reach out to your local sales representative to discuss solutions.
