Clean air freight
Highly economical airplanes
Within its network, DB Schenker uses airplanes from leading carriers, giving it access to the most efficient fleets in the world. With Eco Charter, DB Schenker's offer for air freight, carbon dioxide emissions can be cut by up to 20 percent.
Eco Charter enables logisticians to book Boeing 777, or, in the future, Boeing 747-8F cargo planes, with highly economical engines, aerodynamically optimized winglets, an ultra-light carbonfiber design and a higher cargo volume.
DB Schenker also shifts air freight along the main trade routes onto direct flights, thus avoiding the additional take-offs and landings that are particularly fuel-intensive. Eco Charter is currently available on the routes from Frankfurt to Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Chicago. Carbon dioxide emissions can be cut by up to 20 percent this way without having to forego the advantages of air freight in terms of speed.
