This award at the Lloyd's Loading List Global Freight Awards was sponsored by CargoSmart ShoreTension is designed to facilitate safer mooring of sea-going ships and can be used at any cargo terminal for ships of any size.

As reported in WorldCargo News at the time, ShoreTension was invented several years ago by the Royal Boatmen's Association Eendracht (KRVE), the boatmen of the port of Rotterdam.

Today it is marketed globally by ShoreTension Holding, a joint venture of All-round Port Services (the pension fund of the Rotterdam boatmen) and Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam.

Currently, says ECT, more than 100 ShoreTension units have been sold worldwide and many projects are under investigation. Recently, new contracts have been signed for ShoreTension at the ports of Fremantle in Australia and Taranaki in New Zealand.
