    The Breakbulk Route to Zero-Emission Shipping

    The drive to cut greenhouse gas emissions is complicating an often fraught relationship between breakbulk shippers and carriers. A few carriers are investing in lower-emission, more efficient ships, but the sector overall is reluctant to order new vessels for several reasons, including because there is no clarity on what the energy transition will mean for marine fuels in the long term. At the same time, many shippers expect carriers to help them meet their Scope 3 emissions obligations. This panel will discuss how the breakbulk sector is working to meet lower-carbon obligations in the near term and make long-term investment decisions, as well as lay out likely scenarios for the future of marine fuel.
