This paper provides an overview of several parameters that would improve the fuel efficiency of shipping. Calculations are carried out from a Latin American perspective, and illustrate the emissions to air and the fuel consumed by different transport modes. One of the conclusions is that initiatives and incentives to improve energy efficiency in the shipping sector are few and far between in the region and that Latin America and the Caribbean lags behind other regions.
