CargoAi, the digital solutions provider, and Neste, producer of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), have announced a partnership enabling freight forwarders and their clients to significantly reduce the carbon emissions of their cargo transport.
Starting this month, CargoAi offers the possibility to purchase Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel when booking a cargo transport.
This can be done in the booking flow – either after a booking is confirmed or when the cargo is being tracked.
The use of sustainable aviation fuel significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions from air transport.
Purchasing Neste-produced SAF helps companies meet their climate targets and credibly report their CO2e emissions reductions.
“We are proud of this landmark partnership with Neste, as sustainability is at the core of all our product developments and customer interactions,” said Matthieu Petot, CEO of CargoAi.
“Building on the CO2 Efficiency Score already available in our Cargo2ZERO solution, will further encourage forwarders to enter into discussions with their own clients about what is needed for the industry to move forward towards reaching the industry’s Net Zero targets together.
“We are also enabling access for smaller freight forwarding companies in 110 countries to purchase SAF in smaller quantities.”
Widening use of SAF
Jason Reichow, vice president business development, renewable aviation at Neste, said: “I am excited to announce this pioneering partnership between Neste and CargoAi.
“Working with an innovative and industry-leading partner such as CargoAi allows us to accelerate and broaden the utilisation of sustainable aviation fuel into new markets.
“Through this partnership, Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel is made available to CargoAi customers for any cargo booking to reduce the emissions of their shipment while utilizing CargoAi’s innovative digital booking platform.
“We are very proud of our partnerships with like-minded organisations sharing the same commitment to a more sustainable future for aviation.”
How the CargoAi x Neste offering works
During the booking or tracking phase, freight forwarders will automatically be prompted with data of the CO2 emissions that their shipment will emit, calculated based on IATA standards.
They will then have an option to purchase varying percentages of SAF to reduce emissions. Neste ensures the purchased SAF volumes are delivered and used by partner aircraft operators.
The emission reductions achieved will be reported back and can be used to credibly report against sustainability targets.
