Transport and logistics provider HOYER Group has published its Sustainability Report for 2018, highlighting continued emission reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other pollutant emissions.

As part of its target to reduce CO2 emissions by 25% per ton-kilometre, HOYER achieved a 4% reduction of pollutant emissions in 2018, compared with the prior year. This represents an improvement of over 20% in the past 10 years.

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

The company has achieved this environmental performance through several initiatives, including moving the maximum possible volume of goods by intermodal transport, using HOYER’s fleet of over 40,000 tank containers.

The use of Smart Tanks also enables more efficient resources planning, which in turn reduces the number of empty runs and reduces costs. Fitting tanks with sensors provides discrepancy alarms and improves transport security.

Additionally, investments by HOYER in vehicles with Euro-6 engines has positively impacted the company’s environmental performance. Almost 100% of the trucks in Europe are expected to be equipped with this drive technology by 2020.

The company is also trialling the use of liquefied natural gas and compressed natural gas trucks, which have considerably lower-emission engines.

“HOYER sees great potential in further digitalisation, especially investments in intelligent logistics solutions will be a main focus to steadily increase efficiency and quality, and to further improve customer service and environmental performance,” the company added in a statement.

HOYER intends to further maximise payloads, reduce empty runs and improve fuel consumption by using larger interrelated volumes of data.
