Hapag-Lloyd and Kuehne+Nagel have partnered to achieve a reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from their joint container-transport activities to 17% by 2020.

To meet the target, the companies will develop long-term solutions for container transport, such as optimising the movement of empty containers, using eco-friendly reefer equipment, and using containers with steel floors instead of wooden.

Working under a Carbon and Sustainability Pact, Hapag-Lloyd will also help Kuehne+Nagel to collect and analyse emission information from its vessels.

Based in Germany, Hapag-Lloyd is a shipping company, whereas Kuehne+Nagel is a logistics provider based in Switzerland.
