Dr. Wissam Naji, CCO/Head of Sales, Sallaum Lines SA, told Robban Assafina during Breakbulk Middle East which was held lately at Dubai, about the company’s plans to develop its terminal at the port of Antwerp, as a way to further advance shipping between Arab countries, Europe and Africa: “Our future plans include developing this terminal to handle larger amounts of cargo, linking the Arab and European countries together and developing the shipping sector as well.”

Dr. Naji also spoke of Sallaum Lines’ participation in Breakbulk Middle East this year, which proves the company’s future prospects to seek investment opportunities and become a leading company in this sector. “Sallaum Lines eyes the breakbulk market as a very promising market, and we intend to enhance the shipping sector through our significant contribution in the near future.”

And with the environment and the human health being a top priority, the company seeks to face this challenge through its future plans of carbon free operations.

Speaking further about this, Dr. Naji stated that Sallaum Lines has set a long-term target of net-zero emissions of greenhouse gas (GHG) by 2050. The goals and visions of the initial GHG strategy are to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping. This means a reduction of CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across international shipping by at least 40% by 2030, and working to achieve 70% by 2050, compared to 2008.
