Scan Global Logistics (SGL) has partnered with retailer Majid Al Futtaim to launch a pilot project using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
The pilot project aims to reduce carbon emissions for airfreight shipments of Majid Al Futtaim Lifestyle fashion products from Asia to the UAE.
The pilot project started on May 1 and will continue for over three months. Fahed Ghanim, chief executive, Majid Al Futtaim Lifestyle, said: “Majid Al Futtaim Lifestyle is proud to partner with Scan Global Logistics to trial Sustainable Air Fuel for our air shipments.
“We believe in thinking holistically about the impact our business has on the environment and the communities in which we operate, and this latest partnership is a testament to Majid Al Futtaim’s unwavering commitment to sustainability as the Group journeys closer to Net Positive by 2040.”
SAF is part of SGL’s portfolio of sustainable logistics solutions available for customers, including biofuel for ocean freight, road freight and electric trucking.
