DHL Introduces Unique Carbon Reporting Feature
*DHL Global Forwarding, Freight expands its green service portfolio with a
new, automatic tracing application on CO-emissions
*New feature available for customers worldwide
MIAMI -- October 1, 2013
DHL Global Forwarding, Freight, the air and ocean freight specialist within
Deutsche Post DHL and one of the leading providers of road freight services in
Europe, is the industry’s first company to include an automatic carbon
footprint reporting feature as part of its track and trace system. The
customer system complies with norms and latest industry standards. From
October 1 onward, customers are able to see the carbon footprint of their
shipments within DHL’s web based services ‘DHLi Public Tracking’ and ‘Active
Tracing’. The reporting service automatically appears in the system. The new
feature is available for customers worldwide.
“More and more customers demand a precise calculation of their individual
carbon emissions when shipping goods. The European Standard and the new
regulation by the French government on the calculation of greenhouse gas
emissions for transport services further add to this trend. By implementing
the report feature in our already existing tracking tools, we get ahead of
competition and offer our customers individual reports that are easy to
access,” said Roger Crook, CEO DHL Global Forwarding, Freight.
“Providing our customers the option to track their carbon emissions from any
internet-enabled device is a real differentiator that can open the door to
close partnerships to develop efficient supply chain solutions by leveraging
all our Green Supply Chain Services. Ultimately we will be partners in
generating efficiencies and mitigating CO[2 ]footprint,” said Alejandro
Palacios, regional head of Business Strategy and Performance Management.
To receive individual carbon footprint statements of their shipments via
‘Track & Trace’ or via ‘Active Tracing’, customers just have to enter their
shipment ID and click on the CO footprint button. The system will then
provide the user with an individual carbon emissions notification. The data is
compliant with the European Standard EN 16258, which was developed by the
European Committee for Standardization (CEN), as well as the new French Decree
2011-1336, which came into effect today.
France has its own reporting scheme, as the French government significantly
increased environmental protection regulations following the environmental
summit Grenelle de l’environnement in Paris in 2011. The French decree
provides a mandatory carbon reporting scheme for transports from, to and
DHL Global Forwarding, Freight offer a wide range of green services, including
Carbon Reports, the Carbon Dashboard (a supply chain efficiency visualization
and simulation tool) as well as customer specific optimization projects.
The carbon footprint tracing feature offers customers transparency on the
environmental impact of their transports. In addition, to achieve more
detailed information for their transport management, they can receive a
consolidated carbon report upon request.
