ESL Shipping, steel producer SSAB and Port of Oxelösund have started Virtual Arrival trial in the Luleå-Oxelösund traffic. NSG is acting as a port agent in Oxelösund. The experiences after the first couple of arrivals have been positive and have resulted in reductions in vessels’ consumption and CO2-emissions.

“ We are happy to be part of this trial as ESL Shipping’s agent in Oxelösund. We see this as an important part in the way towards more sustainable shipping, says Agency Manager Markus Blom.

The basic idea of Virtual Arrival is to reduce a vessel’s speed to meet revised arrival time if it is known that the berth will not be free on arrival. Regardless of the actual arrival time, the vessel still retains its place in the line-up based on the arrival time in normal service speed. In addition to decreased environmental footprint, Virtual Arrival gives a port better tools for more reliable scheduling and line-up of vessels. At the core of Virtual Arrival are the cooperation and active communication between parties.

"This trial shows that together we can reduce emissions by changing the traditional way to work", continues Blom.
