APL’s Responsible Cargo Practice on Endangered Species
As a responsible corporate citizen, APL is committed to ocean biodiversity conservation. Fully supportive of efforts that curtail the carriage of shark fin on board its vessels, APL became a signatory to the Hong Kong Liner Shipping Association Shark Fin Policy in July 2015.
We would like to inform you that with effect from 15 December 2015, APL will strictly reject bookings of cargoes carrying shark fin or goods containing shark fin. With that, shark fin joins the list of endangered species products which APL already does not accept carriage, including elephant tusk, ivory, rhino horn and antelope horn.
