DSV A/S, a Danish freight company, has reportedly launched services that will enable customers to track their supply-chain emissions and emphasize the potential for cuts.

The new services of DSV comprise programs to track CO2 emissions and maximize supply chains to curb them along with access to carbon offsetting and sustainable fuels.

The company has stated that large enterprises are seeking help to curb their emissions while moving goods around the globe. According to the International Transport Forum of OECD, the global freight sector is expected to witness a rise in greenhouse gas emission by close to a fifth by 2050, with the demand doubling over the next thirty years.

According to Chief Executive Jens Bjorn Andersen, DSV has always maximized the supply chain of its customers with regards to the number of inventories held by them and the company can now design this with an aim of CO2 reduction.

Andersen did not reveal the pricing of the new services. However, he cited that there is a significant demand from its customers, making it a competitive parameter.

DSV, with a fleet of over 20,000 long-haul trucks running across European roads daily and million square meters of warehouses across the world, can handle everything from supply chains of multinational companies to turf pallets required for resurfacing football pitches.

One of the pressing challenges will be to curb road emissions, which account for close to 65% of total freight emissions. The short-distance transport can be managed using electric trucks but for long-haul transport, the industry needs a fuel solution like green hydrogen, added Andersen.

Mr. Andersen trusts that the first test drives of hydrogen trucks will take place within the next two years.

In 2020, truck makers including Man, Daimler, Ford, Volvo, and Scania, a unit of the commercial vehicle arm of Volkswagen AG, decided to stop selling traditional diesel trucks by 2040.
