DHL Global Forwarding becomes first to offer customers biofuel-based marine transport

December 19, 2017 |

In Germany, DHL Global Forwarding and the GoodShipping Program agreed to collaborate in making ocean freight transports more environmentally friendly. With the signed memorandum of understanding DHL Global Forwarding is the first to offer its customers the opportunity to select next generation marine biofuels rather than fossil fuels for their transports by sea.

Deutsche Post DHL Group has been exploring renewable fuels as an important lever to minimize ocean freights’ impact on the environment. Key criteria are that they are produced sustainably and do not compete for example with food production for land use. Following strict sustainability standards, the waste-based biofuels must meet the requirements to be qualified as the cleanest biofuels currently available on the market. Based on a like to like approach, the current container fleet can bunker and burn advanced marine biofuel without any technical modifications.
