We select our transport solutions worldwide on a caseby-case basis, applying the principles of safety, punctuality and cost-effectiveness. We also take into account the CO2 emissions resulting from our transports. We are focusing especially on further expanding our use of ships as the most efficient means of transport.
In addition, to handle our transportation requirements, we are increasingly using relatively low-emission combined transport solutions in which most of the distance is covered by rail, inland vessel or maritime vessel, thus keeping pre-carriage and onward carriage by road to an absolute minimum. Europe in particular has a good infrastructure for this kind of transport. However, the increased use of rail means that combined transport is even an option for long-distance connections to China.
In Germany, we continue to use the TÜV SÜD-approved Eco Plus solution offered by logistics provider DB Schenker Rail for transporting our products by rail. The electricity required for transport is obtained from renewable energy sources. This enables us to reduce the CO2 emissions from our German rail transport operations by almost 75% compared with the standard solution.
