PSA International has joined the Coalition for the Energy of the Future, a multi-project initiative to accelerate the development of alternative fuels and technologies and cut emissions in the logistics chain.
In a statement, the terminal operator said it has joined at the same time as Bureau Veritas and Airbus and will look to sustain new green mobility models.
It has also joined AWS, Carrefour, CMA CGM Group, Cluster Maritime Français, Crédit Agricole CIB, ENGIE, Faurecia, Michelin, Schneider Electric, Total and Wärtsilä in the Coalition.
Tan Chong Meng CEO, PSA International, declares, said, “PSA is proud to be a part of the Coalition, which is in line with our mission to enable greener logistics choices for all by working with like-minded partners.
“We are excited to support the development of future energies and technologies, and to do our part to collectively create a more sustainable future for transport and trade.”
Additionally, the Coalition has unveiled a series of milestones it will launch in 2021. These include plans to encourage the use of hydrogen as a transportation fuel, as well as other biofuels and liquified natural gas (LNG).
It will also hope to expand the use of electric vehicles in key points in the supply chain, such as warehouses, terminals and ports and develop a roadmap to achieve zero-emission logistics by the end of 2021.
There are also plans to launch intermodal green hubs and help ports convert to carbon-free operations by the end of 2021.
