Sailing towards an environmentally
friendly future

Seafreight is the most carbon-efficient mode of transportation and produces fewer grams of exhaust gas emissions for each ton of cargo transported than air, rail, or road transport. Millions of containers that are used around the world are now 98% recyclable. There is little if any dispute about the fact that shipping is the most carbon-efficient mode of transportation.
