    Avolta and DB Schenker partnership pioneers marine biofuel in Barcelona-Miami transport route

    Avolta, the leading global travel experience player, celebrates its trailblazing agreement in Spain with DB Schenker, the world's leading logistics service provider, for the transport of goods using marine biofuel between Europe and the United States. This is the first contract of its kind in the Spanish market and places Avolta among the pioneering companies in low-emissions maritime transport.

    From now on, all containers that Avolta will move on the Barcelona - Miami route, using biofuel, will be shipped on low emission through the application of waste-based marine biofuels and additional units of sustainable marine biofuel, to achieve additional compensation of the biofuel’s upstream emissions. This biofuel switch could prevent over 150 tons of CO2e Well-to-Wake emissions per year, based on Avolta’s 2023 container volume on this route, reducing up to 84% of the CO2 emissions.

    The fuel used is called Used Cooking oil methyl ester (UCOME) and is based on renewable and sustainable sources, mainly waste cooking oil. The application will be guided by the Book & Claim System, a set of principles that have been developed through a global, multi-stakeholder process with third-party validation to ensure that the use of this chain of custody model has full traceability and credibility, as well as a demonstrable climate impact.

    Camillo Rossotto, Chief Public Affairs & ESG Officer Avolta, commented: “We are taking a significant step forward towards decarbonising our shipments and route transportations. This agreement represents the starting point of the transitioning to biofuel for ocean freight which will contribute to decarbonise our logistic emission. Our company's commitment to sustainability is firm and long-term and, as proof of this, we are planning to increase the volume of containers transported using biofuel, advancing in the sustainable and low-emission transportation industry."
