FastShip is out to revolutionize international commerce by focusing on three factors: speed, affordability and time-definite performance

When operational in 2011, we will offer five day, portgate-to-portgate, time-definite express freight service between Europe and the U.S.— enabling door-to-door service that is comparable to standard airfreight, at half the price.

For the first time, trans-Atlantic shippers will be able to ignore the inconvenience of an ocean in the middle of their supply chains. Just-in-time manufacturing networks will become much more agile and lower cost. Companies on both sides of the Atlantic will be able to react more quickly to sudden shifts in market demands. Consumers will benefit from dramatically lower shipping costs for time-sensitive goods.

All of this is made possible by a family of innovative patented technologies and approaches that together makeup the FastShip system.

With advanced hull design and propulsion systems, our FastShips will be able to make the trans-Atlantic crossing in four days even in rough seas—half the time of even the most advanced ships today. Our specialized terminal operations and unique cargo handling systems will allow ships to be unloaded and reloaded in a remarkable six hours, speeding the delivery of our customers' cargo and allowing each ship to triple the productivity of conventional ships. The result will be an unparalleled level of time-definite service for our customers at a cost far below airfreight.
