CMA CGM in biofuel test program
CMA CGM has joined hands with IKEA Transport & Logistics Services, the GoodShipping Program, and the Port of Rotterdam to test and scale the use of sustainable marine bio-fuel oil.
The test will begin with a bunkering of the marine bio-fuel oil on a CMA CGM containership on 19 March.
The test is being facilitated by the GoodShipping Program, a sustainable initiative dedicated to decarbonising ocean freight, and is the latest step in the scaling of low carbon marine bio-fuel oils for wider commercial use within the maritime industry.
