Being needed around the world, our fender systems are frequent travelers with regular long-distance trips. Between the manufacturing facility and their final destination in global ports, fender systems are usually transported by truck, vessel or train.
As a company focused on sustainability, we make an impact by favoring carriers who are committed to a zero carbon goal. Along the supply chain, we evaluate where we can make an impact, and how.
One of our partners, the shipping company Maersk which aims to be climate-neutral by 2040, operates their fleet on green fuels. They support their clients, in this case us, to reach our ambitious carbon reduction goals. Maersk ECO Delivery is a sustainable choice to transport our fender systems responsibly and to move closer to net-zero emissions from supply chain related activities.
With regards to hinterland transportation, we also place special attention to truck and train carriers who operate on LNG or eco-power. Besides huge efforts of transforming their vehicle fleet, many freight forwarding companies engage in a variety of initiatives of e.g. protection of species or resource protection. Altogether important initiatives, well appreciated by the ShibataFenderTeam Group, and being a decisive factor for starting a cooperation.
Although being spread around the world and partly in remote locations, we have our supply chain in close sight, being aware of how our decision for a carrier makes an impact to greener distribution, and our overall goal, a better tomorrow.
