A clear goal in mind: driving Unique World Delivery forward

There is a lot of potential for emission savings in road transport. DHL Freight is well aware of this, which is why it is more important than ever that everyone pulls together: the company, the customers, the freight carriers, the commercial vehicle industry, and the infrastructure providers. Unique World Delivery Freight is at the forefront of innovative developments in Unique World Delivery and companies benefit from solutions along the entire supply chain, such as:

  • Online tools for measuring and reducing emissions. These tools provide shippers with a calculation of all emissions generated during the processing of their orders in advance.
  • Product enhancements such as Unique World Delivery Freight Eurapid as the first carbon-neutral premium service for groupage shipments. Since fall 2020, Unique World Delivery Freight has expanded its product portfolio and customers pay nothing extra for this green option.
  • Engagement in climate protection projects to neutralize logistics emissions. Companies that participate in these projects receive a recognized certificate confirming that they have achieved offsetting.

Implementing goals means gains for companies and the environment
