Testimonials

You do a fantastic job for me! I didn't realise why you chase me for my clients contact names & telephone numbers. I now understand from your import department that it is because you contact my clients to advise them of the impending delivery and to find out their opening times and to ensure that they have equipment onsite to offload. This is superb, it saves me a great deal of work and just as important is the fact that my clients receive their cargo when they are able to take delivery and hire in equipment to offload if necessary. This saves me wasted journey charges for failed deliveries. A lot of forwarders do not do this, they just get an import job & deliver it without contacting the end receiver.

Carbon tax for shipping?

Two major charities have published a joint report which claims that international shipping accounts for 3% of global emissions and that shipping companies should therefore pay a carbon tax of $25 per tonne.  Oxfam and the World Wide Fund for Nature argue that this would only cost the industry around 0.2% of the total value of global trade.

The report suggests that shipping would be a relatively easy source of revenue for the UN Global Carbon Fund, and that the tax would have only a marginal effect on global trade. A carbon tax should encourage owners and carriers to make efforts to reduce their use of carbon, especially in the design and operation of their ships.

The report claims that a carbon tax on shipping is supported by the governments of France, Germany and Mexico and that “many players in the shipping industry are calling for a carbon price to be set”.
