DHL Freight Creates Fully Sustainable Premium LTL-Service
DHL Freight, one of the leading providers of road freight and customs services in Europe, extends the coverage of Eurapid and adds new features to its premium less-than-truckload (LTL) product.
The service is now covering 95% of all business addresses within 25 countries in Europe. In addition to an improved same-day pick-up and Pre-12 delivery service, an additional Pre-10 delivery option is now also available in defined zip-code areas.
Furthermore, all services booked via Eurapid are now completely climate neutral. The carbon emissions caused by Eurapid shipments are fully offset in recognized climate protection projects, providing customers certified climate neutralization of their shipment without extra costs.
Uwe Brinks, CEO DHL Freight said: “With continued growth in global trade there is a growing need for environmentally friendly solutions. DHL Freight Eurapid provides our customers a green state-of-the-art premium LTL service for their road freight shipments.
“In line with our ‘Mission 2050 - Zero Emissions’, we are already able to fully offset emissions and offer certified climate neutralization of all shipments via Eurapid.”
The DHL Freight Eurapid service is built on the backbone of the Freight EuroConnect network. With operating more than 2,000 daily international line hauls across Europe the network stands for a seamless, cost efficient door-to-door service.
Through the update of Eurapid, DHL Freight can offer their customers fully climate neutral shipping. The green option is automatically included in all services at no extra cost.
The amount of CO2 emissions produced during the handling and transport of a shipment, including upstream emissions from energy provision, is calculated using a verified measurement process.
To offset these emissions, carbon credits are bought from recognized climate protection projects that reduce the amount of CO2 emission in the atmosphere.
With this initiative, DHL Freight wants to contribute to a certified climate neutralization along the customer’s supply chain.
