Author: Jessica Hunt
DHL Express, founded in 1969, is a global logistics and express courier company that provides international shipping, courier, and parcel delivery services. It is a division of the German logistics company Deutsche Post DHL, which is the world’s largest logistics company in terms of revenue. As one of the world’s leading express delivery companies, with a presence in over 200 countries and territories, its services include time-definite and day-definite delivery of documents and packages, as well as international shipping and logistics services for businesses of all sizes. In recent years, DHL Express has also been focused on sustainability, with a goal of achieving zero-emissions logistics by 2050. The company has invested in electric and alternative fuel vehicles and has implemented a range of initiatives to reduce its carbon footprint, including a program to offset carbon emissions from its shipments. The company’s latest initiative, “GoGreen Plus” allows customers to reduce the carbon emissions of their shipments by using Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). This is the first time a global express carrier has offered this service, and it will initially launch in the UK, followed by Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Canada, Australia, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates. Customers based in these countries can choose to select GoGreen Plus as an option when using MyDHL+, the company’s online shipping and tracking platform. The service is flexible and can be selected for individual shipments. Eventually, GoGreen Plus will be available to all DHL Express customers worldwide, and customers can customize the amount of SAF they want to use to achieve their desired CO2e reduction.
