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.”

Flying Ships serve an untapped opportunity in the expanding global logistics market for fast, cost effective delivery of time-critical, price-sensitive goods. The global logistics market is growing annually and projected to be more than $15 trillion over the next 5 to 7 years.
