Hapag-Lloyd partners with DB Schenker to achieve supply chain decarbonisation

Hapag-Lloyd has established a partnership with DB Schenker to drive the decarbonisation of supply chains. Following the launch of Ship Green, the esteemed logistics provider has chosen Hapag-Lloyd’s sustainable transportation solution as a pivotal component of its sustainability efforts.

DB Schenker and Hapag-Lloyd have formally agreed to enhance container transports with a biofuel derived from waste and residues, leading to reduced emissions. By the conclusion of 2023, DB Schenker aims to achieve around 3,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions reduction, facilitated by the utilisation of at least 1,000 tonnes of pure biofuel.

“We are excited about this new partnership with DB Schenker as we share the common goal of making logistics more sustainable. 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”, said Henrik Schilling, Managing Director Global Commercial Development at Hapag-Lloyd.

“I am very pleased that together with Hapag-Lloyd we are setting another example for sustainability in our industry. 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”, said Thorsten Meincke, Global Board Member for Air & Ocean Freight at DB Schenker.

Hapag-Lloyd has launched the Ship Green product to offer its customers emission-reduced ocean transports. Based on biofuel, customers of Hapag-Lloyd can add Ship Green as an additional service to their existing bookings, thereby avoiding CO2e emissions. Using the ‘Book & Claim’ chain of custody, Hapag-Lloyd can attribute avoided emissions to all ocean-leg transports, regardless of the vessel and route used. Ship Green is available for all shipments containing standard, hardtop or tank equipment. By offering Ship Green, Hapag-Lloyd is continuing along its path towards achieving climate-neutral fleet operations by 2045.
