On land, Maersk has delivered an integrated solution with an electric rail link in India, decreasing carbon emissions. It has moved 239 container units so far this year and is on track for 2500 container movements in 2023.
By using Maersk’s ECO Delivery for their ocean freight, Volvo Group is forecast to cut the emissions on 10,000 containers per year in 2023.
Together, the teams have been collaborating on more accurate forecasting of future emissions by using real-world data, rather than relying on historical averages.
“We are part of the problem, therefore it’s vital that we accelerate the transition and hold the industry to the highest standards. And Volvo Group will be a role model as our ambition is to be net zero for carbon emissions by 2050”, says Mia Edofsson.
This partnership is significant because it combines the strengths of two global leaders in their respective industries. With Volvo's expertise in transportation and Maersk's expertise in global logistics, it will enable the widespread adoption of more sustainable transportation solutions.
“I see partnership as the new leadership – we cannot reach our climate goals alone, we need to work together. Something this ambitious is, of course, challenging and hard, but we will go further together. We will drive more change and more results, pooling our knowledge and our expertise”, says Mia Edofsson.
