Over the last year we have designed a sustainable strategy, called “Eco-Safe Logistics”, which meet our objectives for a safe and green environment and as well contributes to the profitability of our company.
This concept is centred around three areas within the sphere of influence where we make the difference: Technology, Operations and Premises.
Vos Logistics invests in technological solutions that offer the best ecological and commercial return. Our fleet will become more eco-efficient over time. We continuously explore opportunities to use alternative fuels to reduce CO2 emissions.
Dedicated teams in each transport specialsm are responsible for optimizing loads and load ratios. We offer our clients alternative transport, intermodal solutions and integrated logistics and supply chain solutions with a smaller environmental footprint. Moreover, we promote eco-efficient driving and train our drivers in optimizing their fuel/kilometre ration. This is an integral part of our seeking to attain operation excellence.
A significant percentage of our CO2 emissions are related to our premises and warehousing capacity. Improving the environmental performance of our premises make sense from an ecological and a commercial perspective. Investment plans consider eco-safe logistics in order to gradually improve our in-house environmental footprint.
Our “Eco-Safe-Logistics” agenda for the next five years defines specific performance indicators in each of the three TOP areas. The agenda builds on the Responsible Care programme and the standards we have set ourselves.
