DHL Express and DNV Petroleum Services (DNVPS) have extended their green partnership for another two years, the logistics company announced on 14 May.
DNVPS is a marine fuel management services provider and is the first auxiliary service provider in the global maritime industry to enter into an agreement for the DHL GOGREEN Carbon Neutral shipping services in 2011.
This two-year contract worth S$5 million (approximately EUR3.2 million), will see DNVPS use the DHL GOGREEN Carbon Neutral service as well as DHL's outbound and regional inbound express transport services for their sampling equipment and bunker oil samples for testing respectively, DHL said in an announcement.
The service was adopted across DNVPS' global markets, including its specialist laboratories in Singapore, Oslo, Rotterdam, Houston and Fujairah.
Since embarking on the green journey with DHL in 2011, DNVPS has shipped more than 90,000 GOGREEN shipments, offsetting 1,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide in two years.
