Sustainability in Logistics
More and more customers make their decision for a logistics service provider according to environmental protection and sustainability criteria.
For 24plus, economy and ecology complement each other. Commercial vehicle technology still does not offer vehicles that are powered by renewable energies. This limits the opportunities in general cargo logistics to improving capacity utilization and reducing the consumption of conventional vehicles.
The determining factors for the transport-related emission values are utilization, the stop density in the suburban traffic, the routing of the main races, the vehicle fleet and the behavioral component of the employees, above all the driver. These are at the same time the adjusting screws for the economy in the general cargo forwarding. A low-carbon logistics is therefore basically an economic and efficient logistics.
An important step towards more sustainability is to create transparency about logistics-related emissions and to identify the areas of the logistics chain where greenhouse gas emissions are particularly high. This is the prerequisite for being able to develop effective countermeasures.
The national general cargo system traffic from 24plus has been certified since 2013 according to DIN EN 16258: 2013-03. With this integrated method, 24plus determines the greenhouse emissions of all transports within the network and measures changes through initiated optimizations. On the basis of these surveys, 24plus provides its partners with Best Practice Panels and supports and promotes measures introduced to reduce CO2 emissions.
