AMEROPA BULK SHIPPING (ABS) - RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS POLICY
While more than 90% of the world trade is carried across the seas, the global shipping industry accounts only for about 2-3% of the world's total Co2 emissions. Seaborne transport is therefore the most energy-efficient way to move goods over long distances.
As a time charter operator of 15-20 modern bulk carriers it trades ocean freight and supports Ameropa’s own transportation requirements.
ABS does not own any vessels.
ABS is responsible for the commercial operation of the vessels, including contracting voyages and cargoes and coordinating related activities such as bunkering, routing, optimisation of voyages. The responsibility for crewing, maintenance and compliance with international regulations and maritime conventions lies with the ship owner.
