Carriers warn missed sailings may be on the way as vessels transition to low-sulfur fuel

560 low sulfur

Carriers are warning that missed sailings may be an issue in the fourth quarter when several vessels are taken out of service for a week at a time to prepare the ships for the transition to low-sulfur fuel. While each carrier will handle the transition slightly differently based upon its fleet profile and those of its alliance partners, there is a hope that transitions will be underway well inn advance of the 2020 deadline. Installing a scrubber can take a vessel out of service for 30-40 days.
