New hybrid equipment which will help DP World Southampton cut its emissions and reduce its carbon footprint, began operations this week. The 12 new hybrid straddle carriers use 20% less fuel than standard machines and are the most efficient on the market.
This investment by DP World is part of the global trade enabler’s role in making supply chains more sustainable. DP World Southampton has already placed an order for another 12 hybrid machines which will be delivered by the end of 2019. This will mean that more than a quarter of the company’s operational fleet will be hybrids.
By constantly renewing and upgrading its fleet, DP World Southampton will have reduced its Nitrogen Oxide emissions by more than 50% by 2020.
