Freight transportation of the future is one that is sustainable and technology-driven. ESG reporting across industries have put increasing pressure on the logistics sector to deliver on energy efficiency and environmental sustainability aspects. Challenges such as the ongoing COVID disruption and fuel concerns point at the urgency for the sector to strengthen resilience.
Efforts to develop greener options are starting to see good results. The world’s first CO2 reduction program for airfreight, RHEGREEN, was launched by Rhenus Logistics in 2019. Today, RHEGREEN remains the only product that provides insights on the emissions prior to shipping. Since then, customers have been able to improve their emission performance by knowing which lanes their emissions are higher than the average and thus they can reduce emission in future by choosing greener (RHEGREEN) options.
Building a Greener Future through Sustainable Freight
Rhenus is committed to help businesses reduce their ecological footprint as it continues to develop greener and better supply chain solutions. In the area of ocean freight, Rhenus will neutralize the carbon emissions of all of its less-than-container-load (LCL) products by 2030. Other ongoing initiatives include exploring more trade lanes across different transport modes, and working on Carbon Neutral initiatives for air freight. It undergoes an annual assessment, and has received the Silver Status for several years from EcoVadis, an independent agency that evaluates corporate social responsibility-related activities in accordance with international standards.
Rhenus continues to explore green ideas and new technologies, in collaboration with research institutions, partners and customers, to make the global supply chain more sustainable.
