DHL renews biofuel partnership with Formula One

news item image
DHL has renewed its partnership with Formula 1 and doubled its F1 biofuel-powered truck fleet.
Following the success of the introduction of biofuel-powered trucks to its F1 fleet last year, DHL is introducing a further 19 trucks which will reduce emissions by 83% compared to their diesel counterparts.
Celebrating a 20-year partnership with F1, DHL is also launching a new motorhome to tackle carbon emissions and support F1's net-zero goal.
Last year, F1 announced that DHL’s new fleet of trucks running on biofuel reduced carbon emissions by an average of 83% compared to fuel-driven trucks during the European leg of the 2023 season.
Across the nine European rounds, 18 trucks were powered by HVO 100 drop-in fuel and travelled more than 10,600 km - transporting an average of 300 tonnes of vital freight per race.
A voluntary certification organisation approved by the European Union calculated the 83% figure through a certification of carbon emissions.
Data from last summer’s event provided an invaluable insight as F1 and DHL explored further opportunities and sustainable innovations.
The trucks also represented a small part of the many pieces being used by the sport as it moves towards being net-zero by 2030.
