Shell Aviation will supply sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to DHL Express at Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam


DHL Express to fly on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for the first time from Schiphol Amsterdam Airport 

 

The SAF will be supplied by Shell Aviation as part of its supply agreement with Neste, announced in September 2020


Shell Aviation confirmed today that it had entered into an agreement to supply DHL Express with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. The deal sees DHL Express become the first customer to be supplied under Shell and Neste’s SAF supply agreement, announced in September 2020.1
 
The agreement will enable DHL Express to take regular flights using SAF, an important step forward in its ambition of reducing all logistics-related emissions to zero by 2050.2 The volume of SAF being supplied by Shell Aviation represents a full year of DHL Express’s fuel requirements from Schiphol Airport, helping to reduce its emissions from this European hub. The SAF will be used in blended form and is made from sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue raw materials. In its neat form and over the lifecycle it reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% compared to fossil jet fuels.3
