Dachser adds SAF booking option for airfreight

Freight forwarder Dachser will offer a Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) booking option to customers as part of its emission reduction efforts.

The German company said that shipments transported using SAF generate 30% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than those transported with traditional fuels.

Customers will be able to select SAF on all flights offered by the forwarder, which secured a large contingent of SAF ahead of the launch of the new offering.

The company warned that the SAF option would not be offered free of charge, but “should be within an affordable range”.

“The current price per liter for SAF is several times that of conventional kerosene and is likely to remain so for years to come due to the limited supply,” Dachser explained.

To prove that the fuel was purchased and that the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions can be offset in the climate balance, every customer can request an emissions report and, in the following year, a certificate stating the emissions saved, the number of liters of SAF used, the year of consumption and the exact SAF raw material basis.
