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

Hapag-Lloyd AG and DB Schenker have signed an agreement for emission-reduced container transport based on the use of waste- and residue-based biofuel.

The deal follows the launch of Hapag-Lloyd’s ‘Ship Green’ programme in May. This allows customers to avoid emissions with a “Book & Claim” chain of custody whereby Hapag-Lloyd purchases biofuel and adds it to selected vessels’ fuel mix, then allocates this to individual shipments regardless of the vessel and route.
