Leading the way in
green logistics – but is doing it in a variety of ways.
Logistics offers great potential in terms of eco-balance optimization, meaning continuous optimization on both small and large scales pays off.
The mega-trailers that have been traveling for the past two years between the logistics center in Pfullendorf (DE) and the production plants in Rapperswil-Jona (CH) and Pottenbrunn (AT) are a good example of this. Mega-trailers are vehicles that have a greater loading capacity due to their greater loading heights. Instead of 66 pallets, there are now 99 – a step in the right direction towards reducing CO2 emissions.
When it comes to logistics, sustainability goes far beyond what we do within the company. Geberit selects logistics partners according to clearly defined quality criteria and also encourages them to initiate their own environmental protection programs by means of an environmental code of conduct. Examples of this include training courses for drivers on fuel-efficient driving techniques, climate-neutral logistics facilities and the bundling of transports to reduce empty mileage.
With green logistics, Geberit focuses on a holistic approach for the resource-efficient and environmentally friendly transportation of goods. This sophisticated transport management system pays off both from a business and ecological perspective.
ing efficiency – this is also Geberit’s goal
and motivation in logistics. The new mega-
trailers carry 50 per cent more pallets and
are just one example of the measures being
undertaken as part of our green logistics
