DHL Global Forwarding Vietnam has formed a partnership with Datalogic to reduce CO₂ emissions.
A global technology company that specialises in data capture and factory automation markets, Datalogic will become the first customer in Vietnam to adopt DHL’s GoGreen Plus Solution which offers shipments that substitute heavy fuel oils with eco-friendly alternatives.
“In the logistics industry, leadership extends beyond efficiency, it encompasses responsibility,” said Managing Director, DHL Global Forwarding Vietnam, Laurence Cheung. “Together, we navigate a course where each shipment signifies a commitment to a greener, more responsible future for our industry and the planet we share.”
GoGreen Plus reduces carbon emissions in Full-Container Load and Less-Than-Container Load shipments with a combination of insetting and offsetting methods using eco-friendly fuel alternatives such as biofuels or sustainable marine fuel and carbon credits. This collaboration is expected to reduce 40,000 kilograms of CO₂ emissions.
“Partnering with DHL Global Forwarding Vietnam on the GoGreen Plus initiative aligns with our commitment to responsible business practices,” said Datalogic Global Logistics Manager, Le Xuan Vinh. “This collaboration benefits our operations and contributes to the broader goal of fostering a sustainable and environmentally mindful supply chain.”
In alignment with the Paris Climate Agreement, DHL Group has a mission to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 and will invest €7 billion in sustainable fuel and clean technologies by 2030. GoGreen Plus forms a major part of its sustainability roadmap and is available for both ocean and air freight shipments.
