  • We4Sea will map out the savings potential for A2B-online Container’s ships and GoodFuels Marine will use this to look at the replacement of fossil fuels by biofuels.
  • Data will be presented on a web platform, allowing A2B-online to see the actual fuel consumption of its ships and the potential for more efficient shipping.
