DHL reduces Formula 1 cargo carbon emissions by 83%
DHL and Formula 1 have announced that the new fleet of trucks running on biofuel reduced carbon emissions by an average of 83% compared to diesel-driven trucks.
These trucks made their debut at the European leg of the 2023 FIA Formula One World Championship.
Across the nine European rounds, the new 18 trucks were powered by HVO100 drop-in fuel (hydrotreated vegetable oil)2 and travelled over 10,600 km, transporting an average of 300 tons of freight per race.
These trucks were vital in delivering the events in Europe, which concluded with the FORMULA 1 PIRELLI GRAN PREMIO D’ITALIA 2023 in Monza last month.
Paul Fowler, DHL Motorsports Logistics: “The introduction of the 18 biofuel-powered trucks this season marks a significant stride towards a more sustainable future for both Formula 1 and DHL.”
Ellen Jones, Formula 1: “Transport and logistics make up a significant portion of our carbon footprint in our sport, and it is crucial to have like-minded partners like DHL.
