Maersk, Flying Tiger Copenhagen partner for green cargo transport

Flying Tiger Copenhagen will transport Maersk ocean cargo with ECO Delivery Ocean

A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) has announced that Flying Tiger Copenhagen will transport its entire ocean freight transport volume under Maersk care with the ECO Delivery solution from 2024.

With ECO Delivery, Maersk customers can handle ocean transports completely with certified green fuels such as second-generation biofuel based on waste feedstocks and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ocean logistics.

These fuels are replacing conventional fossil fuels on containerships in Maersk’s fleet. The corresponding GHG emission savings are confirmed to the customers with a certificate.

The emissions of these seaborne transports are being reduced by over 80 per cent on a lifecycle basis compared to the usage of conventional fossil fuels.

ECO Delivery Ocean transports will be exempted by Maersk from EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) charges. Furthermore, customers reportedly benefit from fixed prices for the green fuels.

ECO Delivery will also become available for airfreight cargo as well as landside transports in certain areas.
