Over the past decade there has been an increased emphasis on sustainability in the shipping industry, with a large focus on emissions reductions and managing our carbon footprint. By transitioning from traditional solvent coatings to new, cutting-edge water-based technologies our customers benefit from a whole range of outcomes and gain a real competitive edge in the market. No longer do you need to discard old containers, as their maintenance and repair becomes an important part of the process and the transition to a more sustainable business becomes a reality.
The issues faced by the shipping industry to make operations more sustainable and environmentally friendly have both short-term and long-term challenges. There are some shorter-term strategies that can be undertaken affordably to improve sustainability and worker safety, and this is where the Aquio solution comes in. From a long-term perspective, Aquio are also committed to working with the industry to build “Sustainable Solutions in Shipping” well into the future.
