Our additional booking option for less greenhouse gas emissions

As part of DACHSER's climate protection strategy, air freight customers can make use of the additional booking option “Sustainable Fuel”. By blending Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), air freight shipments can thus be transported with 30 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions. The service is provided at an additional charge on all routes worldwide. To prove that the biofuel has been purchased and that the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions can be credited to the carbon footprint, an emissions report will be prepared by DACHSER upon request, and a certificate will be issued in the following year indicating the emissions saved, the quantity of SAF liters used, the year of consumption, and the exact SAF raw material base.
