   Rhenus Logistics Air & Freight announced Monday it introduced the first worldwide air freight carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction program, which could reduce emissions by 10 percent and 40 percent.
    Rhegreen, which is free of charge, offers the opportunity to choose “greener” aircraft for the shipment of cargo by airfreight. The system calculates rankings for airlines and considers the aircraft types, fuel efficiency and the distances involved, and it is based on which aircraft is most efficient in terms of CO2 on any route, Rhenus said in a statement.
    Rhegreen is offered from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to Chicago, Mexico City, Mumbai, Shanghai and Singapore. Rhenus plans to expand the program to other destinations from Frankfurt, Brussels, Madrid and other origins in the coming months.
    “The demand for a sustainable supply chain continues to grow,” board member Tobias Bartz said in a statement. “Rhegreen is a major step in offering our customers the choice to reduce the CO2 emissions of their air freight. The rollout of this free-of-charge service will offer our customers the opportunity to partner together with Rhenus on creating a more sustainable future.”

   The program was developed by Krista Zuurmond, quality manager, and Frank Swart, procurement and air product development, at Rhenus in the Netherlands.

I can absolutely deny that we have started a price war and can also say we have zero intent to do so. We are focused on profitability and generating cash.

The Port of Hamburg handled 2.3 million TEUs in the first quarter, which was a 6.4% growth in container handling. The U.S. became the port's second-largest partner in container traffic with 121,000 TEUs.
