Investing for the future

With almost 30% of European short sea tonnage being over 30 years old, there is a pressing need to modernise the tonnage. To meet this challenge, AtoB@C Shipping is currently building twelve 5,350 dwt plug-in hybrid vessels that are the most efficient and environmentally friendly vessels in the world in their size class. Read the latest updates of our new building project here.

The new vessels, optimised for the cargoes of our clients, provide superior environmental performance exceeding the regulatory requirements in many areas. 

The maritime industry is subject to various international and regional regulations, including safety, environmental, and operational standards. As these regulations evolve and become more stringent, renewing the fleet ensures that we have the modern capacity to serve our clients for the years to come.
