The aim of the SAIL cargo pilot is to put transport into the ethical equation with a zero-emissions low-impact cargo sailing ship that can access goods where they are produced.
The idea is to create sailcargo hubs in small ports and harbours giving local businesses direct access to ethically transported goods.
A call to tender has been published, seeking an "Expert for the development of Sailing Cargo Network Platform". You can se the tender here. Also, the Sail pilot is tendering for a Project Manager - you can see this tender here.
The project will analyze the socio economic impact of the centralization of shipping and the importance of small ports to local economies.
