The ports of Trelleborg and Lübeck and shipping company TT-Line have signed a memorandum of understanding on creating a green shipping corridor, the organisations said in a press release this week.

The organisations plan jointly to develop sustainable solutions and concrete projects with a view to phasing out the use of fossil fuels within the corridor by 2040.

The two ports intend to add additional shore power connections, while TT-Line will convert four of its ships to be able to connect to the facilities while at berth.
