Nissan Designs a Relatively Cleaner Car Carrier

Visitors to this blog know how much I love the idea of making seafaring more efficient - yep, I have been beating the sailship drum for some time. But, there is a place for large fuel efficient fossil fuel powered cargo vessels compared to some of the dinosaurs that we have today. And Nissan, the first car company to have made a major leap with its Leaf electric car, has shown the way ahead with a fuel efficient roll on roll off car carrier to transport their Leaf cars. My hat's off to Nissan! I hope this aerodynamic design is also applied to container carriers and to dry bulk cargo carriers - the shipbuilding industry could do with savings on fuel costs and the world could do with less pollution!
