DHL Express launches GoGreen Plus for air cargo product
Bonn, Munich — DHL Aviation, the in-house airline of DHL Express, is launching a new optional GoGreen Plus service for its air cargo product.
The new GoGreen Plus service allows customers to reduce the carbon emissions associated with their cargo using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). From June, air cargo customers of DHL globally can choose the GoGreen Plus service for their shipments, with customers being given the chance to tailor the CO2e reduction they want to achieve and the amount of SAF they use.
SAF is produced from waste oils and can provide greenhouse gas emission reductions of up to 80 percent over its lifecycle compared with the conventional jet fuel it replaces.
“Our greatest goal is achieving net-zero emissions by 2050,” said Travis Cobb, EVP Global Network Operations & Aviation, DHL Express. “Using SAF is currently key to reducing carbon emissions in aviation and our GoGreen Plus service is made possible following our collaborations with bp and Neste to supply SAF to DHL Express hubs around the world.”
DHL Aviation manages 18 own and partner airlines with more than 300 dedicated aircraft fulfilling over 2,400 daily flights to more than 500 airports worldwide. Most of the freight capacity is used for DHL Express’ main product TDI. If any cargo space remains on these flights, DHL Express sells it to customers in the air freight sector.
The GoGreen Plus service is part of Deutsche Post DHL Group’s sustainability goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
