CMA CMG successfully refuels with sustainable marine bio-fuel oil
IKEA Transport & Logistics Services, CMA CGM, The GoodShipping Program and the Port of Rotterdam are pleased to announce the successful refuelling on Saturday March 23th of the CMA CGM WHITE SHARKwith sustainable marine bio-fuel oil.
The test, which represents a major step for the decarbonisation of ocean freight, saw the companies work together in a first-of-its-kind partnership for the shipping industry. The CMA CGM White Shark, a 5,095 TEU (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) container vessel, was refuelled with the bio-fuel oil on Saturday while calling at Rotterdam.
Demonstration of scalability marine bio-fuels
Results from the trial will give the maritime sector a vital demonstration into the scalability, sustainability and technical compliance of sustainable marine bio-fuel oil. This will benefit all industry stakeholders in their environmental strategies, in line with the impending International Maritime Organisation (IMO) decarbonisation pathway.
The sustainable marine bio-fuel oil was developed by GoodFuels, the leading provider of sustainable marine biofuels to the global commercial shipping fleet, after undergoing three years of intensive testing with marine engine manufacturers. The second-generation bio-fuel oil is completely derived from forest residues and waste cooking oil products, is expected to deliver 80-90% well-to-propeller CO2 reduction versus fossil equivalents, and virtually eliminates sulphur oxide (SOx) emissions – all without any requirement for engine modifications.
The trial was facilitated by The GoodShipping Program, a sustainable initiative dedicated to decarbonising ocean freight.

DHL and Smart Freight Center (SFC) recently published an insightful whitepaper explaining the key concepts and benefits of carbon insetting for the global transportation industry. At GoodShipping, we are proud to have been highlighted as leaders in this space, making shipping more sustainable by replacing fossil fuel with biofuel. Inspired by DHL and SFC, we have developed a quick and easy guide to carbon insetting for businesses looking to achieve their climate goals, using the whitepaper’s main points.
ONE becomes GoodShipping pioneer, decarbonising cargo shipments and accelerating the uptake of sustainable marine biofuel
On November 22nd, during a trial with Ocean Network Express, the MOL Experience was refueled with GoodFuels Bio-Fuel Oil, at the Port of Rotterdam. The vessel was bunkered sustainable biofuel corresponding to the freight volume of GoodShipping’s pioneers Dopper, Blygold International, Geelen Counterflow, Yumeko, North Actionsports Group, SRFACE and Zaytoun. Another milestone reached, thanks to our dear clients!
