Shipping companies insist on deadline extension


The United Nations' International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) sulphur directive means that shipping companies in Europe will have to use fuel that contains less than 0.1% sulphur by 2015, Logistics Finland reports. The Danish Shipping Association claims that this transformation should be delayed until 2020, as five years is not a long enough time for the industry to make a successful transition.
Gert Jakobsen, Press Director for DFDS Unifeeder, claims that the price of low sulphur fuels is significantly higher and would see shipping companies lose their competitiveness with road transport companies. Jan Fritz Hansen, Vice MD of the Danish Shipping Association, is convinced that between 20 to 30 routes and roughly 60 ships would be forced to close by the speedy introduction of the new law.
