Good booking situation

 

The pandemic is over and people are traveling again. After our talks over the last few weeks with all the leading shipping companies, it has been confirmed that the pre-booking figures are higher than in 2019 at the same time. In the Mediterranean region in particular, all shipping companies have very well booked ships for the high season. There is a growing feeling that some passengers are preferring to use their own cars again, as flights and rental vehicles have become very expensive in the peak season.

 

Despite these positive prospects, the RoRo and ferry industry faces major challenges from the upcoming carbon tax and the demand to reduce CO2 emissions. But there is still no one perfect solution to operate clean shipping in the future, especially on medium and long distances. Everything that has been done so far is piecemeal and the industry is waiting for the best solution. So that this time does not end in a cost trap, the President of the ICS (International Chamber of Shipping), Dr. Grimaldi for a responsible and pragmatic solution until the technical systems are in place to go to sea with greatly reduced emissions.
