Best Global Logistics extends its partnership with the Air France KLM Martinair Cargo Corporate Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Programme

Best Global Logistics (BGL) has extended the ongoing collaboration with the Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP Cargo) Corporate Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Programme. This collaboration marks a significant step towards realizing our Going Green mission.

What is SAF?

Conventional airplanes typically rely on fossil fuels, specifically kerosene or jet fuel, for their propulsion. However, burning kerosene releases carbon dioxide (CO₂) into the atmosphere, contributing to global warming. A more sustainable alternative solution is SAF, which:

  • Is a renewable feedstock obtained from waste oils of organic origins, like used cooking oils.
  • Emits at least 75% less CO₂ than conventional jet fuel throughout its life cycle.
  • Reduces emissions of other harmful substances, such as particulate matter and sulphur.

Our contribution

The SAF Programme has been a crucial element of our Going Green initiative since its onset three years ago. The programme enables us to offer our clients the opportunity to reduce the environmental impact of their shipments and reach their carbon reduction targets. In the quarterly and annual Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reports, SAF offerings will be included to show the reduction of the environmental impact. Additionally, contractual arrangements can be made with clients regarding the quantity of SAF added to each shipment. The agreement with AFKLMP Cargo includes 156,250 litres of SAF to offer to clients, actively contributing to the availability of sustainable solutions in the industry.

Carbon Insetting Programme

With the introduction of our Carbon Insetting Programme, we aim to enhance the sustainability of its transport services. This initiative underlines our commitment to environmental stewardship. The programme sets an industry example and serves as a platform for current and future sustainability solutions in global logistics.

By employing the Carbon Insetting Programme, we aim to reduce CO₂ emissions within our operations and those of our participating clients in the coming years. As a global forwarder, we strive to set an example for many others in the air freight industry and empower our clients to make more sustainable decisions.
