Transport and logistics service provider HOYER Group has published key figures, successes, initiatives and future goals in its newly published 2018 Sustainability Report.

The report highlights that compared to 2017, the HOYER Group achieved a 4% reduction of pollutant emissions, positively coinciding with the company’s internal corporate target to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 25% per tonne-kilometre

According to Ortwin Nast, CEO of the HOYER Group, “This puts the HOYER Group well on the way to achieving the environmental targets that we have set.”

The Germany-based company’s improved environmental performance has been a result of several factors, one of which is to move the maximum volume of goods by intermodal transport, using the company’s fleet of over 40,000 tank containers.

Smart Tanks enable more efficient resource planning, decreasing the number of empty tanks, as well as reducing costs. Fitting tanks with sensors provides discrepancy alarms and considerably improves transport security 

The company’s investments in vehicles with Euro-6 engines also have a positive effect on the 2018 performance. Almost 100% of the trucks in Europe are scheduled to be equipped with this drive technology by 2020.
