“Developing green and digital sea lanes is a priority for the Port of Bilbao, and fits in with the port’s growing portfolio of sustainability initiatives. Decarbonizing routes such as those featured in the report will have a significant impact due to the volume of cargo and passengers they carry and the huge potential that exists for road-to-sea transition. For these reasons, We believe in decarbonizing these sea routes. Andima Ormaetxe, Director of Commercial Operations and Logistics, Port Authority of Bilbao.
