Maersk Increases Sustainable Rail Transport Alternatives

Offers new CapO2 free intermodal transport solutions in Germany

Maersk has extended its sustainability support of German rail customers with a new CapO2 free intermodal transports solution, which is now available on 85% of its German inland rail services.

This local and cost neutral solution reduces CO₂ emissions to zero and saves around 9.100 tons of CO₂ annually compared to conventional trains and approx. 40.000 tons compared to road transport.

Our aim is to be able to convert 100% of our rail inland network in a year from now, by Q1 2022. This is another example of Maersk’s effort to help customers reach their goals to reduce their CO₂ footprint.
