Airfreight goes green with Rhenus

[ April 15, 2019   //   ]

Rhenus Logistics has introduced what it says is the first worldwide air freight carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction programme. The free Rhegreen service offers the opportunity to choose a ‘greener’ aircraft for freight shipments.

Rhenus Logistics Air & Ocean has established a system to calculate rankings for airlines by considering aircraft types, fuel efficiency and the distances involved. The calculation system, validated by an external organisation, enables 10-40% reductions in CO2 emissions.

Rhenus is currently offering the service from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to Chicago, Mexico City, Mumbai, Shanghai and Singapore with plans to expand to other destinations from Frankfurt, Brussels, Madrid and other origins in the coming months.
