AFKLMP Cargo and Bolloré Logistics team up under SAF program


Bolloré Logistics has joined the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) program of Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP Cargo) for its 2021 shipments between Paris Charles de Gaulle and New York John F. Kennedy airports. This first of its kind collaboration illustrates the ambition of these two historical partners to tackle the environmental challenge of airfreight transportation.

Christophe Boucher, EVP Air France Cargo, says: “The Cargo SAF Program enables shippers and forwarders to power a percentage of their flights with SAF. Customers determine their own level of engagement, and we ensure that their entire investment is used for sourcing SAF. I’m delighted to see the speed at which Air France KLM Martinair Cargo and Bolloré Logistics have agreed on the use of our SAF program, launched a few weeks ago. I’m proud that together we are trendsetters in a field that will grow in our companies and society.”

This innovative aviation fuel will cut CO₂ emissions by at least 50% on airfreight shipped by Bolloré Logistics on this symbolic trade lane. Investing in this strategic route represents a new step towards achieving greater sustainability in the future for both Bolloré Logistics and AFKLMP Cargo.

“Reducing carbon emissions is a major challenge in the airfreight transportation industry, and Bolloré Logistics is committed to addressing this with innovative solutions. In 2021, the company has committed itself to reducing scope 3 CO₂ emissions linked to its transport services’ performance by 30% by 2030. We believe that Sustainable Aviation Fuel is one of the key factors in reaching this ambitious objective,” says Thierry Erhenbogen, CEO of Bolloré Logistics.

In line with its “Powering Sustainable Logistics” CSR program, Bolloré Logistics aims to provide its customers with cutting-edge solutions to reduce freight transportation’s environmental impact drastically. AFKLMP Cargo’s solution is the most efficient in today’s market, and it will directly impact CO₂ emission reduction.

“We are facing major challenges for the planet, which implies a considerable transformation throughout the value chain. Bolloré Logistics continues its efforts to contribute to the decarbonisation of the sector and to offer our customers end-to-end solutions that are always more efficient from an environmental point of view, from clean trucks to the maximum use of reusable consumables and via Sustainable Aviation Fuel,” says Odile Maarek, CSR Director of Bolloré Logistics.

“I’m pleased with the clear commitment of Bolloré to join forces in making flying more sustainable by participating in the AFKLMP Cargo SAF program. Only with such investments will we successfully develop a more viable market for Sustainable Aviation Fuel,” says Adriaan den Heijer, EVP Air France-KLM Cargo and Managing Director Martinair.

Air France KLM Martinair Cargo and Bolloré Logistics are looking forward to developing this collaboration and expanding the number of routes using Sustainable Aviation Fuel, with growing participation from other major international customers.
