An agreement has been signed between Hapag-Lloyd and the logistics provider for emission-reducing container transports using biofuel based on waste and residue.
The collaborations are a clear indication of the industry’s progress towards decarbonizing supply chains, according to Henrik Schilling, Managing Director Global Commercial Development at Hapag-Lloyd.
Hapag-Loyd’s SAAM terminal business acquisition is finished.
Thorsten Meincke, Global Board Member for Air & Ocean Freight at DB Schenker, stated that this partnership will contribute to the achievement of our goal of becoming carbon-neutral and expands our biofuel offering in ocean freight.
DB Schenker’s proposal involves the declaration of around 3,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions avoidance by the end of 2023, with at least 1,000 tonnes being pure biofuel.
Hapag Lloyd’s inaugural megamax containership with dual-fuel LNG is now in service.
Hapag-Loyd’s Ship Green product is designed to provide customers with emission-reducing ocean transports that use biofuel as an additional service, avoiding CO2 emissions through the “Book & Claim” chain of custody.
All shipments that contain standard, hardtop or tank equipment are eligible for Ship Green. As a result, Hapag-Lloyd is moving towards achieving climate-neutral fleet operations by 2045.
