Swiss WorldCargo announced an agreement with World Courier, which will support the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) within the SWISS airfreight division. World Courier’s investment in SAF, which represents the highest investment that Swiss WorldCargo witnessed so far, will be the equivalent to supporting more than 2,000 shipments from London to Switzerland, and will result in 146,513 kg of reduced carbon emissions.
The agreement between World Courier and Swiss WorldCargo reflects the two parties’ shared commitment to establish more sustainable practices across the biopharma logistics and airfreight industries.
“At Swiss WorldCargo we invest in driving positive change in the airfreight landscape and are directing our efforts to make collaborations such as the one with World Courier a new reality in the near future. World Courier's investment in SAF with Swiss WorldCargo is in fact a statement of our shared commitment for a more sustainable future of our logistics industry” says Lorenzo Stoll, Head of Cargo at Swiss International Air Lines.
“Our partners trust us to deliver vital pharmaceutical products around the world, ensuring they can reach the patients who need them. As we continue to enhance our service capabilities, we remain equally focused on investing in solutions and implementing practices that enable us to establish more efficient and sustainable operations globally. Our collaboration with Swiss WorldCargo directly aligns with our strategy and reflects the commitment across Cencora to achieve our enterprise-wide science-based carbon reduction target,” said Alex Guite, Senior Vice President of Global Operations & Services at World Courier.
