Bolloré Logistics has joined the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) programme of Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP Cargo) for its 2021 shipments between Paris Charles de Gaulle and New York John F. Kennedy airports.
“The Cargo SAF Programme enables shippers and forwarders to power a percentage of their flights with SAF. Customers determine their own level of engagement and we ensure that their entire investment is used for sourcing SAF,” explains Christophe Boucher, EVP Air France Cargo.
“I’m delighted to see the speed at which Air France KLM Martinair Cargo and Bolloré Logistics have come to an agreement on the use of our SAF programme, launched a few weeks ago. I’m proud that together we are trendsetters in a field that will grow in our companies and in society.”
This innovative aviation fuel will cut CO₂ emissions by at least 50% on airfreight shipped by Bolloré Logistics on this symbolic trade lane. Investing in this strategic route represents a new step towards achieving greater sustainability in the future for both Bolloré Logistics and AFKLMP Cargo.
“Reducing carbon emissions is a major challenge in the airfreight transportation industry and Bolloré Logistics is committed to addressing this with innovative solutions. In 2021, the company has committed itself to reducing scope 3 CO₂ emissions linked to the performance of its transport services by 30% by 2030. We believe that Sustainable Aviation Fuel is one of the key factors in reaching this ambitious objective,” added Thierry Ehrenbogen, CEO of Bolloré Logistics.
