Parallel efforts are currently under way to characterize exposure to VOCs, semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs), and nonvolatile organic compounds (NVOCs
) in aircraft exhaust.
The affected companies, known as Non-Vessel Operating Carriers (NVOCs
), are Trans-Continental Shipping, Celerity Shipping and Forwarding, Pan Gulf Logistics, Al Mulla Logistics, International Agencies, Onyx Shipping Agencies, Clarion Shipping Services and United Arab Shipping Company.
