The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has decided to apply stricter standards on the environmentally burdensome fuel oil in the global maritime industry.
As from January 2020 the enforcement on the reduction of sulphur emissions by large ships will come into effect.
Owners have two solutions, either to use cleaner fuel oil, with higher consumption costs as a result, either fitting a filter system - a scrubber - as a more cost-saving alternative.
Since several months now and on-going, Herfurth Logistics is shipping scrubbers on a very regular basis to worldwide destinations where the filters are installed on ocean vessels.
Our specialists in exceptional transport are organizing the complete logistics flow, from inland to the port, where these large pieces are secured on flatracks, before they're shipped to the overseas destinations where the receiving ships are waiting for them.
