Shipping companies continue to join Trident Alliance ahead of ECA enforcement

The Trident Alliance is welcoming 14 shipping companies have joined the initative ahead of the enforcement of sulphur regulations.

The shipping industry initiative says that the new members allow the initiative to broaden its platform as some of Denmark and Germany’s top maritime companies have joined the ranks.

Chairman of the Trident Alliance, Roger Strevens said: “We are just a few weeks away from what will be a sea-change in the regulatory landscape for shipping, namely the introduction of the 0.1 percent sulphur limits in ECA zones on 1 January 2015. It is reassuring to witness that so many companies want to make sure the new regulations are implemented in a way that ensures the expected environmental benefits as well as a level playing field."

Hapag-Lloyd, DFDS, Ionic Shipping, Euro Marine Logistics, Marinvest, Grieg Star, Wijnne Barens, Seatrade, Spliethoff, Transfennica, Biglift, Ultrabulk, Ultragas, and Ultratank have all joined the alliance., bringing the total membership to 31.

Each of the company’s CEOs have signed a Statement of Commitment supporting the "robust and transparent” enforcement of sulphur regulations.
