Environmental measures

  • Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is available for all flights to all airports worldwide, which represents a considerable enhancement of our existing CO₂e-neutral air freight solutions. DB Schenker has already purchased over 15,000 t of SAF in the first half of 2023 – more than the total purchased in 2022.
  • More environmentally friendly ocean transport: Together with the shipping companies MSC, CMA CGM and Hapag-Lloyd, DB Schenker offers environmentally friendly container transport on all trade routes by using high-quality biofuel. In total, DB Schenker bought 17,000 t of biofuel for 2023, and has thus made an advance contribution in order to achieve an actual reduction in greenhouse gases caused by ocean freight transport.
  • Climate-friendly land transport: The number of battery-­­electric vehicles driven for DB Schenker in Europe was more than 200 in the first half of 2023. These include various models and manufacturers as well as the first operational use of VOLTA trucks. In the first half of 2023, the first tests of hydrogen-powered fuel-cell electric vehicles (FCEV) were also carried out. A first 40-ton truck is being used in daily transport between Cologne and Eupen/Belgium. In early 2023, DB Schenker also participated in first tests using e-trailers. According to initial results, the use of e-trailers enables fuel consumption savings of between 24 and 55%.
  • Eco warehouses: In the first half of 2023, DB Schenker opened the 52nd eco warehouse in Incheon/South Korea. The KL2 Korean Logistic Center is a modern, environmentally friendly logistics hub with an area of almost 28,000 m². With the eco warehouse program DB Schenker is continuing with the expansion of renewable energies, environmentally friendly technologies and the use of respective materials.
  • Circular Economy Logistics: In 2023, for the first time we developed our own product – Circular Economy – for our global customers, which is aimed at the requirements and growing demand for reversing flows of goods and the expansion of circular supply chains. The main components of this product are returns management, specific IT integration and value-added services that enable the return, inspection, repair and sustainable recovery of goods. This lets us support our customers in keeping resources in circulation for as long as possible and without loss.
