Furthermore, the hybridization and electrification of cargo-handling machines, like transfer cranes, are helping to make the ports of Yokohama and Kawasaki more eco-friendly. Safer, brighter LED lights illuminate existing terminals and will be standard within terminals constructed in the future. And we’re also making use of renewable energy. Also, we have implemented modal shifts such as the efficient use of coastal feeders, barges, and railways to help us achieve green logistics. This helps us to reduce not only CO2 emissions but also traffic congestion in the capital region and the port areas.
