Zero emission transport

Zero emission transport

Kuehne+Nagel's import customer in Switzerland, with regular shipments of Solar panels from China to Europe, was offered to match up with the clean shipping work with our Biofuel concept.

  • The cargo is shipped against the volume of biofuel consumed on vessels capable of burning this type of fuel.



The customer agreed to ship 35 TEU* emission-free with Biofuel.

■   Kuehne+Nagel calculates the respective TEU equivalent and buys the required Biofuel volume to neutralise the customer’s supply chain CO2 emissions.
■   The full traceability is guaranteed.

* TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit)


of CO2 emissions were avoided with this initiative.

The customer is entitled to claim a Zero-Emission Status for their ocean imports.
