K+N offers SAF for all shipments

Kuehne+Nagel (K+N) has begun to offer customers the option to purchase Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) for shipments to reduce the environmental impact of supply chains.

The add-on is available on all K+N airfreight quoting platforms and channels.

As SAF still produces some CO2 emissions, carbon neutrality is achieved by substituting each litre of jet fuel kerosene used with 1.33 litres of SAF.

Once the customer requests a quote, the price add-on is instantly calculated alongside all other transport charges and presented as a selectable option.

Until now, SAF pricing was quoted on a per litre or CO2 ton avoided basis, whereas now it is linked to the actual weight of a shipment.

“After the booking confirmation, the equivalent volume of SAF is credited from 12.8m litres of SAF available to Kuehne+Nagel while the customer receives an authorised certificate confirming the emissions saving for purposes of scope three reporting,” the forwarder said.

Yngve Ruud, member of the management Board of Kuehne+Nagel, responsible for Air Logistics, said: “As part of the Net Zero Carbon programme and migration to a low carbon business model, we keep developing easy and transparent sustainable shipping options so that our customers always have a choice of how they want to minimise the environmental impact of their shipments.

“With the new SAF add-on now available on all quotes, our customers can quickly shift from intent to climate action.”
