For Immediate Release
October 19, 2020
SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA — APL Logistics’ customers saved 63,000 MTCO2e from switching from air freight to OceanGuaranteed™ so far in 2020. This is the equivalent of driving 156 million fewer miles in a passenger vehicle.
“We’re thrilled with the success of our sustainability initiatives that are designed to drive business results,” said Jessica Balsam, Director of Sustainability for APL Logistics. “As investors focus on companies’ abilities to compete in a carbon constrained world, APL Logistics offers services to reduce both carbon and cost over time.”
Bill Villalon, President of APL Logistics commented, “The shortage of air freight capacity as a result of disrupted supply chains from COVID-19 has been difficult for many customers to manage… OceanGuaranteed™ is uniquely positioned to deliver business and sustainability solutions in one product, while still ensuring expedited, on-time delivery”.
To achieve the reduction, APL Logistics identifies customer shipments that can be sent using OceanGuaranteed rather than flying product to a destination. This substitution of ocean for air freight saves on cost and carbon while expediting delivery with a guaranteed arrival date.
