Boomerang Helps the Blue Economy Grow

Boomerang carnets® has 35 years of experience providing ATA Carnets for our Blue Economy customers.   Approximately 71 percent of the Earth's surface is water-covered, and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth's water.  The importance of the Blue Economy has become increasingly vital to the world as a major factor to the health of our planet.  According to the World Bank, the Blue Economy is the sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods, and jobs while preserving the health of the ocean ecosystem.  It is a vital part of the world economy supporting millions of jobs worldwide.  By the start of the new decade, the Blue Economy across the globe is expected to double to $3 trillion.  With an ATA Carnet, you can be an integral part of that growth.
