Lufthansa Cargo and Best Services International Freight join forces to use sustainable aviation fuel

Lufthansa Cargo and Best Services International Freight (BSI)

Lufthansa Cargo and Best Services International Freight (BSI) have agreed to reduce the Chinese logistics company’s CO2 emissions associated with airfreight.

BSI will invest in a total of around 137,000 litres of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) at Lufthansa Cargo to offset the CO2emissions caused by its flights.

The two companies reached the agreement on June 26 during this year’s “transport logistic China” logistics trade fair in Shanghai.

J. Florian Pfaff, Head of Region Asia Pacific said: “Best Services International Freight is our first customer in China to opt for the use of more than 100 tons of SAF.

“Examples like this help reduce our CO2 emissions and promote the use of SAF worldwide.

“Every customer who takes advantage of this opportunity is making a significant contribution to the decarbonization of logistics.

“The interest shows us that there is great potential for this, especially in Asia.”

Dr. Wilson Wong, Group CEO of BSI said :”The cooperation with Lufthansa Cargo strengthens our partnership.

“As China’s leading air cargo logistics company and an industry leader in the digitalization process, we combine progress with responsibility.

“With limited SAF production globally, agreements like this are of paramount importance.”
