Pioneering a movement.
In 2007, three friends began a shipping company. While sailing on the Dutch barque Europa, Arjen, Andreas & Jorne saw the beauty and power of great sailing ships that use only the wind as a means of propulsion. They decided to create the world’s first modern “emission free” shipping company, based in the Netherlands.
Tres Hombres Shipping transports cargo 99% emission free over sea, with a focus on products which do not compete with local produce. In addition to raising awareness about the huge amounts of pollution created by the modern shipping industry, we inform about their effects on the planet, teach about alternatives and motivate others to follow our way.
It has become apparent that our ideas – our passion – have turned into a source of hope and motivation for alternative shipping anywhere in the world. Our merchant sailing company plays an important role in the evolution of contemporary sustainable transportation over sea and land. The Tres Hombres has been a shining example of the existing possibilities and is the ambassador for sail cargo worldwide.
