DB Schenker debuts Eco Solutions for greener transport

May 12 - DB Schenker has exhibited its new portfolio of services at the Transport Logistic 2011 trade fair in Munich. This includes its Eco Solutions, the forwarder's range of climate-friendly transportation and logistics services.

Dr Karl-Friedrich RauschDB Mobility Logistics board member, says: "Our Eco Solutions make it possible to reduce, offset or completely avoid CO2 emissions throughout the entire supply chain."

The Eco Solutions range includes Eco Plus, a solution that offers DB Schenker customers CO2-free rail freight throughout Germany; Eco OceanLane enables customers to reduce their CO2 emissions for ocean freight by up to 50 percent; Eco Charter, the air freight solution, can reduce CO2 emissions on the routes from Frankfurt to Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Chicago by up to 20 percent.

For land services, Eco Solutions are also available: DB SCHENKERhangartner and DB SCHENKERrailog offer customers a combination of road and rail transportation that allows them to reduce their CO2 emissions by up to 60 percent.

Eco Warehouse is a solution for building and operating warehouses energy efficiently and sustainably, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 35 percent.

DB Schenker's Eco Solutions range is complemented by a new unit of measurement: the ECO2PHANT. This illustrates how much CO2 customers can save through more energy-efficient transportation. Each ECO2PHANT is the equivalent of five tonnes of saved CO2 - roughly the weight of an elephant.
