Project cargo networks join World Ocean Council

LONDON: July 08, 2019. The Worldwide Project Consortium, Priority Cargo Network and Cargo Equipment Experts have joined the World Ocean Council, a multi-industry alliance on action and collaboration in support of ocean sustainable development.

Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) was founded in 1998 to connect independent project cargo forwarding companies, and to provide a reference source for shippers, carriers and forwarding partners to locate quality project cargo specialists.

The networks director Wolfgang Karau said as most of his members are based close to shorelines, joining the WOC is the “right step to manifest our commitment towards a cleaner tomorrow”.

“We are honoured to have the Worldwide Project Consortium, Priority Cargo Network and Cargo Equipment Experts come on board with the WOC,” declared CEO Paul Hothus. “Maritime transport and cargo logistics are central to global economy, moving 90 percent of international trade – and are thus fundamental to the future of the ocean.

“The WOC embraces leadership companies large and small from across the sectors and around the globe in creating the collaboration and action needed on ocean sustainable development,” he continued.

The non-profit organisation is a cross-sectoral alliance of companies in shipping, oil and gas, tourism, fisheries, aquaculture, mining, renewable energy, ocean technology and investment.
