SEND IT GREEN

Supporting sustainability with technology


SEND IT GREEN is where we offer our customers a fossil-free1 transport alternative within our network. SEND IT GREEN means that we produce the corresponding transport work that your shipment generates with fossil-free technology1 somewhere in our network.

The revenue goes directly to compensating our carriers for the extra cost when they invest in vehicles and fuels that meet criteria for fossil-free transport. The additional cost varies depending on shipping service. For packages to consumers, the cost is + SEK 5 /parcel, and for home delivery + SEK 49 including VAT. The following business prices are exclusive of VAT: Parcels and Parcel Connect Plus + SEK 4, Pallet/Groupage + SEK 39.2, Parti/FTL from SEK + 175 but increases with distance and weight, as an indication an average + SEK 280. Please request a quote to get the price for the option for Euroconnect, Euroline and Eurapid.

How SEND IT GREEN works


The concept is simple. You as a customer buy SEND IT GREEN and DHL ensures that the investment comes to our Swedish carriers who can then invest in  technology and receive compensation for the additional cost. When you as a customer choose SEND IT GREEN, we will produce the corresponding tonne-kilometers that your shipment gives rise to with a more expensive technology somewhere in our network.

SEND IT GREEN contributes to a faster adjustment of the transport system and that our carriers dare to take the risk that a more expensive technology entails. As a customer, you can credit the reduction1.

Our Green Vehicle Fleet


For many years, we have had an ambitious agenda to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We want to reduce our dependence of fossil fuels and to shift to a fossil free transportation (according to Fossilfritt Sverige ). Already in 2008, DHL adopted a global environmental target to reduce CO2 emissions by 30 percent per tonne-kilometers by 2020. This was achieved in 2016, long before the appointed time.

SEND IT GREEN is produced in DHL's green vehicle fleet. To date, these vehicles have driven approximately 32 000 000 km, corresponding to almost 800 laps around the earth. Or about 40 round trips to the moon.

In addition to our efforts to reduce our fossil carbon emissions, we have also since 2002 been able to offer our customers to join us in the sustainable shift for more alternatives in the Swedish transport network. Together we have put more than 200 vehicles with technology on the market. The techniques we have invested in include for example biogas, ethanol, bioDME and electricity.

Participation in SEND IT GREEN


In order to qualify to produce SEND IT GREEN, it is necessary to:

  • Purchase of vehicles or fuel must be more expensive than a standard transport solution. The haulage company must be able to show their additional cost for the vehicle
  • Vehicle must reduce fossil greenhouse gas emissions at least 70 percent2
  • An agreement is concluded with the carrier
  • Vehicles and fuel are monitored monthly
  • Every month we monitor and track to ensure that we carry out at least as many fossil-free tonne kilometres as Send it Green customers have ordered.
  • Annual audit report on the process of Send it Green from an independent party is published on website

1The reduction of carbon dioxide is reported in the emission report. The emission report is a service that can be ordered for anyone who has a customer number with us.

2Fossil free fuels according to Fossilfritt Sverige. Fuels used for SEND IT GREEN in 2020 are electricity, biogas and ethanol.
