Flying Ship Technologies, Corp. has signed a $100 million sales agreement with a European customer for the purchase of wing-in-ground-effect maritime vessels.

“We’re elated to announce this agreement,” said Flying Ship CEO Bill Peterson. “These vessels will provide fast, low-cost delivery to a wide range of coastal locations around continental Europe and the surrounding islands. Flying Ships will improve the quality of life for consumers by enhancing existing trade routes and opening new routes to deliver fresh foods, medical supplies, and e-commerce, while being carbon-neutral and a fraction of the cost of air freight.”

“This order is the first of many for Flying Ship vessels. As the world looks for ways to reduce greenhouse gases and the logistics market continues to surge, we expect even more interest in Flying Ships as a green alternative to ships, trucks, rail and air freight for inexpensive, fast delivery of goods,” Peterson said.
