For six years we have shipped cargo across the Atlantic by windpower only.
Here at Fairtransport, we are proud of this achievement.

In 2007, three friends began a shipping company. While sailing on the Dutch barque Europa, Arjen, Andreas & Jorne saw the beauty and power of great sailing ships that use only the wind as a means of propulsion. They decided to create the world’s first modern “Emission Free” shipping company, based in the Netherlands. Originally named the “Stichting Atlantis Zeilende Handelsvaart”, the company has grown into what is now known simply as “Fairtransport”.

After the restoration of the brigantine Tres Hombres, the ship was added to the fleet of Fairtransoprt in Transatlantic Emission Free Freight Service to the Caribbean, from Europe. As the world’s only Engineless Sailing Cargo Ship, she has become quite famous in her own right. The company has since expanded, with plans to put the world’s first 130m Ecoliner and a 3 masted clipper ship on the sea.

It is the prime intention of Fairtransport to sail cargo emission free, with a focus on transporting special products which are organic, or crafted traditionally – such as Olive Oil, Wine and Rum. Additionally, to raise awareness about the huge amounts of pollution created by the modern shipping industry and affect positive change in the way goods are shipped around the world.

Currently a 140 year old wooden ketch Nordlys is being restored, to be employed in service in the North Sea & greater Europe. Norldys will be added to the Fleet of Fairtransport to promote emission free shipping in European waters. >> READ MORE
