When it comes to icebreaker logistics, the journey to the next port is no different from any other: You can take your time, and take your chances.

That’s because icebreaker traffic has been on a steady decline for decades.

The International Maritime Bureau (IMB) reported in the mid-1970s that just 8 percent of the icebreaker fleet was still operating in 2015.

And that was before the International Whaling Commission announced that it would cut the number of icebreaker-hauled vessels by a third.

As ships have become increasingly smaller and more fragile, the IMB expects that by 2030 the fleet will be just 4 percent.

But there is hope: A new icebreaker called the Lad is in the works to take the icebreakers off the ice and into the sea.

The vessel will be launched in 2019, and is scheduled to be operational in 2021.

“We are confident that this new vessel will enable us to significantly improve the effectiveness of our icebreaker operations, reduce our risk to icebreakers and improve our fleet’s survivability,” IMB President Robert Pecchini said in a statement.

Icebreaker cargo ships The IMB’s annual report for 2015 noted that the number and size of icebreaking vessels on the world’s seas has declined over the past decade.

The world is currently relying on three icebreakers: the Russian Admiral Kuznetsov, the Dutch Kilo and the Danish Kilo.

The fleet of icebreakers has fallen from 6,500 in 2005 to 1,100 in 2014.

“Our goal is to significantly increase the icebreaking fleet by 2030,” IMA CEO Tom Stebel said in the statement.

“This will require a significant investment in our existing ships and will require our international partners to be more aggressive in their investment and in the implementation of new and innovative technologies.”

The IMBA also announced in February that it has set aside $3.5 billion to fund the construction of the second icebreaker, the Kilo-class icebreaker.

This is the second major project to come out of the IMBA’s Icebreaker Technology Program, which was established in the 1970s to build and maintain icebreaking ships and other icebreaking infrastructure.

The program also includes a $4 billion program to build the second and third icebreakers, which are expected to arrive in the next five years.

The IMBU is currently in the process of selecting a third icebreaker for the fleet.

The next icebreaker is expected to be launched around 2022.
