Shipping is the most economic and widest used methods catering to over 90 per cent of global trade , but the adverse effects posed to the environment and humans is unimaginable. To start with, ships carry huge amounts of ballast water in tanks for increased stability and maneuverability during transit while unladen, and empty their tanks at time of loading the cargo. This transfusion of water between different water bodies causes an unbalance on the aquatic ecosystem. Ballast-water-discharges typically contain a variety of biological materials, including plants, animals, viruses, and bacteria. One good example is of the zebra mussel , originally native to the lakes of southern Russia, that arrived in Lake St. Clair by a transatlantic freighter in 1988 via the ballast water and within a decade spread to all of the five Great Lakes. The economic damage cost alone has been assessed at billions of dollars. Not only is the ballast water damaging to the marine & aquatic life systems but to humans as well. Vibrio cholera arrived at Peru in 1991 via ballast water, causing deaths of over 10,000 people in a span of 3 years. Ballast water management systems are being adapted in order to address the growing issue.

Shipping is not only polluting the waters but also causing a maximum damage in terms of air pollution. Ships use Bunker Fuel which release enormous quantities of nitrogen oxide & sulfur oxide, sufficient to constitute for approximately 40% of air pollution over land causing damages to crops & buildings by way of acid rain, respiratory problems & heart attacks to humans. To say something, a ship lets out over 50 times more sulfur than a truck per metric ton of cargo. James Corbett , of the University of Delaware, calculated a worldwide death toll of about 64,000 a year, of which 27,000 are in Europe alone, with Britain being one of the worst-hit countries. Corbett also believes the global figure will rise to 87,000 deaths a year. Next generation cargo ships & cruise lines are being built and put to use , which emit up to 80% lower pollution than others. However the danger still stands as there are over a 100,000 older ships yet at sea.
