Scan Global Logistics, a leading global provider of transport and logistics solutions, and Hapag-Lloyd, one of the world’s largest container-shipping lines, announced May 14 a significant partnership with a multimillion-dollar marine biofuel initiative.


According to Scan Global Logistics, this landmark collaboration underscores a big step forward in both companies’ shared sustainability ambitions.


With sustainability being a key aspect of both companies’ strategies, Scan Global Logistics and Hapag-Lloyd have embarked on a forward-looking initiative to integrate biofuels into their shipping operations.


By utilizing biofuel derived from renewable sources, both partners aim to support customers in substantially reducing carbon emissions and contribute to the global effort to combat climate change.


“This partnership not only allows us to reduce emissions but also reinforces our commitment to delivering sustainable logistics solutions that benefit our customers and society as a whole,” said Mads Drejer, an executive with Scan Global Logistics.


The adoption of biofuels in maritime shipping marks a significant step in the industry’s journey toward achieving carbon neutrality.


Through investments in sustainable practices, Scan Global Logistics and Hapag-Lloyd are taking what the companies say is a big step for the logistics industry toward a more sustainable future.


“We are delighted to have Scan Global Logistics as our valued partner supporting our Ship Green initiative,” said Tom de Wilde, Hapag-Lloyd’s senior director of global sales.

“Together, we are demonstrating our shared dedication to decarbonization and driving positive change in the shipping industry—in line with Hapag-Lloyd’s commitment to operate a net-zero fleet by 2045,” de Wilde added.


Through this collaborative effort, Scan Global Logistics and Hapag-Lloyd aim to establish a long-term partnership for the further upscaling of sustainable-transport solutions.


“This collaboration shows that it is possible to contribute to the joint efforts of decarbonizing the maritime industry and the logistic sector by using currently available biofuel solutions,” stated Scan Global Logistics.


Scan Global Logistics offers end-to-end logistics solutions with a broad range of services across air, ocean, rail, road, warehousing or any combination.


The company’s global network spans six continents with over 3,600 employees across more than 180 offices.
