Scan Global Logistics (SGL) and Hapag-Lloyd, one of the world’s largest container shipping lines have announced a significant partnership with a multimillion-dollar ocean biofuel initiative.

This landmark collaboration underscores a big step forward in both companies’ shared sustainability ambitions.

With sustainability being a key aspect of both companies’ strategies, SGL and Hapag-Lloyd have embarked on a forward-looking initiative to integrate biofuels into their shipping operations.

“We are delighted to have SGL as our valued partner supporting our Ship Green initiative,”
said Tom De Wilde, senior director global sales at Hapag-Lloyd.
