DHL Global Forwarding offering biofuels options for maritime clients
As part of its efforts to green its supply chain and reduce emissions, DHL Global Forwarding is offering its customers the opportunity to select next generation marine biofuels rather than fossil fuels for their transports by sea.
DHL Global Forwarding has teamed up with the GoodShipping Program, a global initiative which is looking to “decarbonize” the container shipping industry by changing the marine fuel mix.
“The partnership with the GoodShipping Program is a unique opportunity to drive change within the ocean freight industry and to contribute to DHL’s environmental target of zero emissions by 2050. Our joint advanced biofuel service is designed as a supplement to our GoGreen Climate Neutral services or as an alternative, giving our customers even more opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint,” said Kathrin Brost, Global Head Customer Intelligence & GoGreen, DHL Global Forwarding.
The new service will be available to DHL Global Forwarding’s customers in early 2018.
