Samskip Multimodal signalled its continuing commitment to shortsea in specific and multimodal services by presenting a ship model to the Norwegian Minister of Transport, Mr. Ketil Solvik-Olsen last week.
Samskip joined the Port of Oslo and the Norwegian Port Association to present the model on behalf of the shipping industry, to highlight shortsea’s contribution to policy aims, given its absence from the Government’s 2015 agenda.
With new sulphur emission regulations effective from January 2015 and the Norwegian Government committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions*, the parties stressed the need for leadership to avoid cargo moving back to road.
The ship model is an exact replica of the Samskip Endeavour, one of Samskip’s 803 TEU shortsea vessels.
