For nearly 10 years we have shipped cargo across the ocean by the power of the wind only!
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”.
Made with blood, sweat & tears
Your product is put in the spotlight – centre stage – in the cargo hold of the world’s only engineless cargo sailing fleet. You will be working with by far the most talked about alternative method of shipping world-wide. Onboard the Tres Hombres and Nordlys, your product is promoted internationally through dockside events, tastings and at festival; not to mention sharing in the fame during radio, newspaper and television interviews.
Fairtransport offers another benefit that no other shipping company can; a chance to load your cargo by hand alongside the crew, to work the sails and take the helm as you transport your unique product into your destination harbour.
Every Tres Hombres Rum bottle, bag or barrel showing this sticker supports the Shipping Revolution. ‘A Class’ Products are a shining symbol of a commitment to sustainability and reducing Carbon Emissions. These products are shipped expressly by sail – without engine, enabling a guaranteed 90% pollution reduction!
