DSV Panalpina has signed a strategic partnership agreement with wind turbine manufacture Vestas.
The partnership will see DSV Panalpina execute and manage Vestas’ general freight and project shipments.
“We are very excited to partner with DSV Panalpina to meet the growing demand for our sustainable energy solutions,” said Henrik Andersen, Vestas group president and ceo. “Combined with the increasing size of wind turbines, the global demand for wind energy is making logistics and transportation more complicated and we must therefore scale our business efficiently. Partnering with DSV Panalpina is a great example of our intention to engage further in close and mutually beneficial partnerships across our value chain, improving both our operational scope, efficiency and sustainability performance”.
Vestas previously announced that it aims to become carbon neutral by 2030. As a result, the agreement also includes a mutual commitment to reduce and eliminate CO2 emissions related to the transport and logistics operations.
