Hapag-Lloyd partners with DB Schenker to decarbonize supply chains with marine biofuel

Hapag-Lloyd has entered into a partnership with DB Schenker for the purpose of decarbonizing supply chains.

Following the launch of “Ship Green” in May, the renowned logistics provider has selected Hapag-Lloyd’s sustainable-transport solution as part of its sustainability initiatives.

DB Schenker and Hapag-Lloyd have signed an agreement for emission-reduced container transports with a waste- and residue-based marine biofuel.

By end of 2023, DB Schenker plans to claim approximately 3,000 metric tons of carbon-dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions avoidance.

This is based on at least 1,000 tons of pure biofuel.

“We are excited about this new partnership with DB Schenker as we share the common goal of making logistics more sustainable,” said Henrik Schilling, managing director of global commercial development at Hapag-Lloyd. “Collaborations like these set a clear signal in the industry and are another example of a step-by-step approach to further decarbonize supply chains.”

Thorsten Meincke, global board member for air and ocean freight at DB Schenker, added, “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.”

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 so-called book-and-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.
