Cable and pipe seal manufacturer Roxtec has joined GEODIS’s new global Sustainable Marine Fuels strategy.

Logistics company GEODIS launched the possibility for freight customers to choose sustainable marine fuels, or fuels produced from waste materials such as used cooking oils and forest residues.

Roxtec has increased its transportation of cable and pipe seals around the world and wants to reduce it carbon emissions.

“We want to act now to reduce our impact on the climate and have, therefore, decided to pay a surcharge for the sustainable marine fuel. In this way, we contribute to accelerate the production of sustainable fuels and make them more accessible,” said Håkan Nilsson, EVP global operations of Roxtec.

Choosing fuels produced from cooking oils and forest residues enables 90% reduction of CO₂ emissions compared to conventional fuels.

Nilsson said this was a way for the company to promote ocean freight and reduce transportation by air.
