Viasea's Green Vision
For Viasea Shipping, offering greener freight alternatives to the market is crucial. Since the start of our company in 2016, our vision has been to provide the best sea freight option compared to road freight, considering environmental impact, time, and cost. Our latest strategy places even more emphasis on the environmental and sustainability aspects of sea freight, with plans to build two new ships supported by Enova funds.
"We believe that advanced green hydrogen technology will revolutionize maritime transport in Europe, resulting in zero emissions. Since the founding of Viasea Shipping seven years ago, the goal has been to deliver more sustainable transport to the market. First as a greener alternative to road transport, and now with a focus on zero-emission maritime transport in Europe. This is our first step."
Morten Pettersen, Managing Director, Viasea Shipping
"Viasea's commitment to building these advanced ships demonstrates that logistics companies can be pioneers for a sustainable future. Through our investments in innovative technology, we are not only leading in the transport industry but also setting a bold example of how logistics can offer customers innovative and sustainable solutions, forming the basis for a sustainable future."
