Sustainble Aviation Fuel vital for shippers: DHL Report

The demand for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) production has increased considerably, says DHL Global Forwarding in its latest report. The customers’ demand has risen for sustainable solutions. The freight forwarder said a growing number of customer tenders and discussions included greenhouse gas transparency. Customers are also willing to explore the use of sustainable solutions even if they come at a higher cost. However, the forwarder is worried about the supply of SAF. “With the growing demand the availability of sustainable fuels must be scaled up significantly,” the company said. DHL Global Forwarding chief commercial officer Thomas George said: “From today’s perspective, e-fuels such as hydrogen and other sustainably produced synthetic fuels will only become increasingly available from 2030 onwards. “Until then we need to scale up sustainable biofuel usage – and this is only possible in a joint effort.”
