Global hardware technology provider Lenovo has agreed to fly 20 tons of its products per week using DB Schenker and Lufthansa Cargo charter flights fuelled by sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Products including laptops, notebooks, and PCs will be flown from Shanghai (PVG) to Frankfurt (FRA), using what Schenker and Lufthansa Cargo claim to be the only regular full charter connection worldwide 100 per cent covered by SAF.
“Our unique SAF full charter flights help corporate to make their shipments more sustainable,” said DB Schenker’s global board member for air and ocean freight Thorsten Meincke.
“Lenovo is a major customer for this game-changing initiative and an example how shippers are keen for real change towards greener transports. We look forward to seeing further companies who would like to prioritise decarbonising their supply chains together with us.”
By opting for SAF-based transportation, Lufthansa said Lenovo will save ~62 tons of greenhouse gases (CO2e Well-to-Wheel) per week.
“Sustainability is critical to our business and mission of delivering smarter technology for all,” said Lenovo’s head of global logistics Gareth Davies.
“We are proud that we are further enhancing our solutions through this collaboration with DB Schenker and Lufthansa Cargo. For all businesses and individuals, adopting programs that improve sustainability is incredibly important and we are delighted about this new partnership.”
