Green Logistics Transportation

As part of our efforts to introduce more environmentally-friendly logistics processes, we have optimized container loading, truck capacity utilization, and transport routes. We use EcoTransIT in compliance with the DIN EN 16258 to measure our CO2 emissions from finished product transport in the regions Europe, Americas, and Far East. EcoTransIT calculates environmental impacts of different carriers across the world. Its data and methodology are scientifically-based and transparent for all users.

Compared to 2014 we were able to increase data quality and coverage for finished product transport emissions. In Europe, emissions decreased by 10% in absolute terms and by 14% per kilometer. In 2016, we plan to improve our measurement by expanding our emissions management to more countries.  

Furthermore, we leverage benefit from collaborative projects such as NexTrust, which is an EU-funded project that brings together 31 partners to drive collaboration in the logistics industry. Its objective is to increase efficiency and sustainability in European logistics.
