Between 2009 and 2013, the logistics firm reduced its CO2 emissions by more than 20 percent, it says. The conversion of its vehicle fleet to lower-emission engines, in particular, is having a positive impact on this development: 97 percent of its trucks now comply with the Euro V and Euro VI standards.
Intermodal transport, too, is being expanded and is accentuating the trend. 80 percent of Hoyer’s transport routes are now being negotiated with the involvement of rail or ship transport – an increase of more than 15 percent in the past five years. By implementing these and other measures, the company wants to reduce its CO2 level per tonne-kilometre by a total of 25 percent by 2020.
