An unlimited range of containerisation solutions

Of course, ships offer "bulk" solutions for liquid products (oil, chemicals, foodstuffs, etc.) or solid products (ores, fertilisers, cereals, etc.) directly loaded in the hold.
However, the strength of maritime freight solutions lies above all in the impressive choice of containers.
DRY container : the most common container for the transport of parcels, pallets, crates, bags, etc. No liquid goods, hence the name (DRY). The largest are over 12 metres long. The HIGH CUBE container has a height of 2.89 m, in contrast to the standard height of 2.59 m.
OPEN TOP container : open roof with covering tarpaulin, ideal for top loading.
REEFER or refrigerated container : for foodstuffs in particular, temperature selected between -22°C or +22°C.
OPEN SIDE container : open on the side, it facilitates the loading of bulky goods.


Less pollution

Although concerns are often highlighted, such as problems related to fuel, oil spills and other discharges, maritime transport remains the least polluting freight solution per tonne of goods.

Indeed, on a per tonne basis, the greenhouse gas emissions are far lower.

With one litre of fuel, a ship carries one tonne of freight 243 km, compared to 35 km for road transport. The railway covers 213 km.
At the same time, the ship will emit 12 kg of CO2 compared to 14 kg for the train and 76 kg for the truck.

Finally, many ports and major players in the shipping industry are taking the ecological impact very seriously and are creating new processes, services, fuels and ships that consume less energy.
