Hapag-Lloyd partners with DB Schenker to decarbonise supply chains

Hapag-Lloyd has entered into a partnership with logistics company, DB Schenker for the purpose of decarbonising supply chains.

This follows the launch of Ship Green in May, DB Schenker has selected Hapag-Lloyd’s sustainable transport solution as part of its sustainability initiatives.

They both signed an agreement for emission-reduced container transports with a waste and residue-based biofuel.

By end of 2023, DB Schenker plans to claim approximately 3,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions avoidance. This is based on at least 1,000 tonnes of pure biofuel.

Henrik Schilling, managing director global commercial development at Hapag-Lloyd says: ‘Collaborations like these set a clear signal in the industry and are another example of a step-by-step approach to further decarbonise supply chains.’

‘This partnership further enlarges our global biofuel offer in ocean freight. With this commitment we are one step closer to our goal of becoming carbon-neutral,’ adds Thorsten Meincke, global board member for air and ocean freight at DB Schenker.
