Let's celebrate Earth Day 2021

Our latest and most innovative technologies are not only accelerating growth in the logistics industry, they’re enabling the entire supply chain to have a more positive impact on our planet. For every Transporeon application you onboard designed to reduce CO2 emissions, the whole of planet Earth feels the benefit.

Thanks to the rich insights and expertise shared amongst our community, we’re increasingly better equipped to continue to drive down inefficiencies that equate to thousands of tonnes of CO2 saved. 

Catch up on all the highlights from our recent and ongoing sustainability-focused initiatives. Let's celebrate earth day together!

Fueling decarbonization in European transport

The Transporeon Hackathon in support of the ALICE Roadmap for Decarbonization is underway. This challenge is designed to accelerate some of the brightest minds in the industry with uncovering the next generation of sustainable solutions in supply chain technology. 

 

Bringing transportation in sync with the world

In this presentation, Hermann Ude introduces the topic of bringing transportation in sync with the world – the core of our mission here at Transporeon.

COVID-19: the catalyst for new momentum needed to achieve green goals

Get Elisabeth’s expert take on COVID-19 as a catalyst for digital transformation and new momentum for achieving green goals, plus the facts and figures that support the adoption of real-time insights platforms and the priority role they play in reducing empty kilometers.

Intermodality and the future of logistics

390 tonnes equates to 500,000 truck loads, and that’s how much LKW WALTER saved in CO2 emissions last year through intermodality alone. Combine that with reported empty mileage reductions of up to 25% and it’s fair to say the rest of the industry needs to climb on board.

 

Decarbonization for european road carriers

A greener future awaits — and carriers are the key. Experts from Kühne Logistics University, Smart Freight Center and Girteka Logistics joined us for a special webinar in which we explored the challenges and opportunities for carriers as they innovate and evolve to meet the sustainability challenge head on.
