GoGreen Plus provides Datalogic with an effective solution for reducing carbon emissions in Full-Container Load (FCL) and Less-Than-Container Load (LCL) shipments. For LCL shipments, a combination of insetting and offsetting methods is employed. The insetting approach involves substituting heavy fuel oils with eco-friendly alternatives such as biofuels or sustainable marine fuel, substantially reducing emissions.

Simultaneously, offsetting is achieved by utilising Gold Standard Verified Emission Reduction carbon credits, implementing a comprehensive door-to-door strategy that addresses emissions throughout the entire lifecycle. Meanwhile, for FCL shipments, the primary focus is offsetting the main haul transportation, ensuring a significant environmental impact to support sustainable shipping.

“In the logistics industry, leadership extends beyond efficiency; it encompasses responsibility. We are honoured to support Datalogic in delivering a more sustainable logistics approach. Through this partnership, we are not merely moving goods but forging a path where environmental consciousness meets operational excellence. Together, we are navigating a course where each shipment signifies a commitment to a greener, more responsible future for our industry and the planet we share,” said Laurence Cheung, managing director of DHL Global Forwarding Vietnam.

The logistics giant has maintained a longstanding partnership with Datalogic Vietnam. Both companies share a dedication to sustainable logistics, actively contributing to the global fight against climate change. This collaboration is expected to reduce 40,000 kilogrammes of CO2 'well-to-wheel' emissions.

“Sustainability is at the core of our values. Partnering with DHL on the GoGreen Plus initiative aligns with our commitment to responsible business practices. This collaboration benefits our operations and contributes to the broader goal of fostering a sustainable and environmentally mindful supply chain," said Le Xuan Vinh, global logistics manager, Datalogic.
