DSV continue to implement initiatives for a more sustainable environment  

DSV is a global player, but as a road freight operator, implementing successful sustainability concepts locally and transforming sustainable innovative ideas into daily operational activities is paramount to making a significant reduction to our CO2 emissions.

DSV in Immingham has launched a trial using CNG Fuels, if the trial proves to be successful this will help it achieve the Science Based Targets set by the DSV Sustainability Board.

CNG Fuels’ supply of Bio-CNG from a waste feedstock is verified and approved by the Department for Transport. Adopting Bio-CNG fuel will contribute significantly to GHG emissions savings for the UK and help towards achieving emissions targets in the future.

“At DSV, we see an increase demand for greener logistics, with switching from diesel to Bio-CNG there is evidence of over90% emissions saving. CNG are anticipating to achieve 100% carbon reduction by early next year, we strive on continuous improvement in our sustainability goals and will continue to implement future sustainable initiatives in our operations,” says Michael Hague, Haulage Operation General Manager.

“Our sustainable fuel options provide a solution to the challenges that many of our customers face when trying to purchase biofuels as part of their decarbonisation strategy. We take care of finding the right suppliers and perform a strict vetting to ensure that the fuels are produced in accordance with guidelines and standards,” says Chris Malyon, Senior Director.

During the first week, the vehicle using CNG Fuels has displayed excellent performance results when compared to diesel equivalent vehicles on the same routes. Switching the HGV fleet from diesel to Biomethane will be critical for reaching its transport decarbonisation goals.
