DHL introduces unique carbon reporting feature

DHL Global Forwarding, Freight expands its green service portfolio with a new, automatic tracing application on CO2-emissions a new feature available for customers worldwide.

Bonn - 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.

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 within France.

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 and to achieve more detailed information for their transport management, they can receive a consolidated carbon report upon request
