In a groundbreaking move, DHL and Formula 1® have embarked on a mission to revolutionize sustainable logistics. With a shared commitment to reducing their carbon footprint, this dynamic partnership has introduced an inaugural fleet of biofuel-powered trucks, consisting of 18 cutting-edge vehicles that will serve all European Formula 1 races in 2023. By adopting HVO100 drop-in fuel (hydrotreated vegetable oil) as their energy source, each truck has the potential to achieve a remarkable minimum 60% reduction in carbon emissions compared to conventional fuels, paving the way for even greater savings.Arjan Sissing, the Head of Global Brand Marketing at Deutsche Post DHL Group, expresses enthusiasm for the partnership's commitment to sustainability, stating, "Our shared dedication to sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint is showcased through our partnership with Formula 1. As an industry leader in green logistics, we are thrilled to introduce our inaugural fleet of trucks running on sustainable fuel this year. Through this initiative, we aim to demonstrate to our fans and customers that it is possible to bring the excitement of Formula 1 races to destinations worldwide in a sustainable manner."The introduction of these biofuel-powered trucks by DHL represents a significant step forward in minimizing carbon emissions while ensuring optimal performance in terms of load capacity and travel distance, comparable to their diesel counterparts. Moreover, the use of biofuel offers environmental and security advantages over traditional diesel bunkering methods. With the capacity to transport up to 40 tons and cover distances of up to 3,500 kilometers per 1,000-liter tank, these trucks utilize second-generation biofuel HVO100, meeting the EN15940 standard for paraffin fuels and functioning as a drop-in fuel. By employing HVO100, Deutsche Post DHL Group adheres to the EU's Renewable Energy Directive, further solidifying their commitment to sustainability. Recognizing the significant impact of these sustainable trucks, DHL and Formula 1 have plans to expand their utilization in the years to come, as part of their ongoing efforts to minimize their environmental footprint.Formula 1® acknowledges the instrumental role that DHL plays in delivering the races and addressing the logistical impact of a World Championship. Ellen Jones, Head of ESG at Formula 1®, affirms, "Together, we are continually seeking more sustainable solutions. Through innovations such as the biofueled trucks, we can take significant steps toward reducing carbon emissions and achieving our sustainability goal of being Net Zero by 2030. It is wonderful to see partners like DHL share the same drive and commitment to creating a more sustainable Formula 1."
