SGL and Hapag-Lloyd launch multimillion-dollar biofuel initiative

Scan Global Logistics (SGL) and Hapag-Lloyd have announced a significant partnership through a multimillion-dollar ocean biofuel initiative. This collaboration marks a substantial step forward in both companies’ sustainability goals.

Sustainability is central to both SGL and Hapag-Lloyd’s strategies. They are now integrating biofuels into their shipping operations, using renewable sources to help customers significantly reduce emissions and combat climate change. Mads Drejer, Global COO & CCO at SGL, emphasised that the partnership not only reduces emissions but also strengthens their commitment to providing sustainable logistics solutions for customers and society.

Adopting biofuels in maritime shipping is a crucial step towards carbon neutrality in the industry. SGL and Hapag-Lloyd’s investment in sustainable practices propels the logistics sector towards a greener future. Tom De Wilde, Senior Director Global Sales at Hapag-Lloyd, expressed delight in partnering with SGL, noting their shared dedication to decarbonisation. This partnership aligns with Hapag-Lloyd’s goal of operating a net-zero fleet by 2045.

The collaboration between SGL and Hapag-Lloyd aims to establish a long-term partnership focused on upscaling sustainable transport solutions. This initiative demonstrates that it is possible to contribute to decarbonising the maritime industry and the broader logistics sector using available biofuel solutions.
