THE Department of Transportation (DoTr) said green freight transport requires a large-scale upgrade of existing sea vessels to achieve zero-level decarbonization.

Leonel Cray de Velez, assistant secretary for Planning and Development at DoTr said, "For us to move the decarbonization to zero form, is to adopt the solutions that are on scales. We need to complete, think-replacement, think-upgrades through upgrading our vessels at scale. We're looking at high-risk vessels, thousands of trucks, thousands of public utility vehicles, and that's the only way we can make a difference."
