(Bonn, Germany) — DHL Group said Wednesday, it has partnered with Schneider Electric to launch a new shipping model aimed at improving sustainability and agility.

They have successfully deployed two multi-modal shipping bridges to reduce carbon emissions from air freight. Schneider Electric estimates that these bridges, by using a combination of air and sea transport, will reduce the carbon emissions of these regional shipment lanes by up to 40% compared to normal air fulfillment. Since the start of the pilot in March 2023, both the Singapore to North America bridge and the India to North America bridge operated in partnership with DHL Global Forwarding, have seen up to 20% carbon emission reduction.
