Scan Global Logistics has partnered with Majid Al Futtaim, a leading shopping mall, communities, retail, and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa and Asia, to launch a pilot project using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

The pilot project launched in May aims to reduce carbon emissions for airfreight shipments of Majid Al Futtaim Lifestyle fashion products from Asia to the United Arab Emirates.

The first shipment was delivered safely and successfully.

“Majid Al Futtaim Lifestyle is proud to partner with Scan Global Logistics to trial sustainable aviation fuel for our air shipments,” said Fahed Ghanim, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim Lifestyle. “We believe in thinking holistically about the impact our business has on the environment and the communities in which we operate, and this latest partnership is a testament to Majid Al Futtaim’s unwavering commitment to sustainability as the group journeys closer to ‘Net Positive’ by 2040.”

SAF is part of Scan Global Logistics’ portfolio of sustainable-logistics solutions available for customers, including biofuel for ocean freight, road freight and electric trucking.

A key reason to focus on airfreight when reducing emissions is that it is the most carbon-intensive mode of transport, with emissions per unit of goods transported significantly higher than ocean or road freight.

As one of the main levers to achieve CO2 reductions within the aviation industry, investing in SAF creates real climate benefits and helps grow the demand for renewable fuels.

“We are proud to partner with Majid Al Futtaim Lifestyle on this pilot project and hope to demonstrate the viability of sustainable logistics and encourage other companies to adopt similar initiatives,” said Allan Melgaard, global CEO of Scan Global Logistics.

The SAF that will be used is made from sustainably sourced renewable waste and residue material.

Over its lifecycle, SAF can reduce carbon emissions by up to 80 percent compared to conventional jet fuel.

The pilot project started May 1 and will continue for more than three months.
