Abstract: Inspired by maritime fair trade, Fair Transport is a concept occurring in line with the emerging issues in the transport sector: questionable quality of service, environmental impact, gender bias and decent work conditions. This paper presents a pilot study identifying perspectives and attitudes of a small group of young and adult generation (21-44 years) from maritime industry regarding the societal role of a fair transport system. The research method used consist in an online survey with 71 respondents from the international maritime sector, whose contribution was recorded for two months (October - November 2019). Primary results indicate that consumption behavior can be influenced by fair attitudes manifested in maritime business and this may lead to sectoral changes in the close future.
