Various studies show that the transport world can be fully sustainable by 2050.But sustainability and transport don’t go together, do they? Nevertheless, we believe that there is still a lot to be gained in the field of sustainability. That is why Oldenburger is actively looking for solutions to reduce its CO2 footprint.
Below you will find examples of the concrete actions we are currently taking on the basis of our social responsibility (CSR):
Pilots with alternative fuels
o LNG: liquefied gas, CO2 savings of up to 33%
o CNG: natural gas, CO2 savings of up to 18%
o HVO100: plant-based biodiesel, CO2 savings of up to 92%
Oldenburger Transport was one of the first transporters to use LHVs on the Netherlands-Scandinavian route and has thus gained extensive experience. Now more than half of the LHV fleet. Since an LHV has more capacity, the CO2 emissions per transported loading unit (such as CC-Container/Europallet) drop by up to 22%
Electric cooling motors
Our latest railcars are equipped with electric cooling motors, so that the cooling motors themselves no longer have any emissions.
Oldenburger Transport has many years of experience in transporting trailers by train. The CO2 emissions of transporting a trailer by train to Sweden are up to 12% lower than a comparable journey by truck.
Oldenburger Transport uses LZV (Long Heavy Freight Vehicles) combinations. LHV trucks are only allowed to drive on the roads that have been cleared by them. The weight is slightly lower than with intermodal transport. The maximum length of this vehicle is 25.25 meters with a maximum weight of 60 tons. By using this mode of transport, you retain flexibility and quality and you ‘gain’ lower CO2 emissions.
Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important factor in all industries. In practice, many transport companies are already fully engaged in sustainable transport. This will only increase in the coming years. As a company, we like to grow with this and try to take our responsibility as much as possible when it comes to the environment. Do you have questions or suggestions for our sustainable transport? Please do not hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to talk to you!
Intermodal freight transport is a form of multimodal transport. Goods are transported by multiple means of transport. These goods are reloaded using a loading unit. With our many years of experience in intermodal transport, we reduce our CO2 emissions by 12%, for example when transporting a trailer by train!
