Energy efficiency

In order to reduce our own emissions, we also take measures to improve the energy efficiency of our transport activities (logistics). For example: the amount of fuel (in litres) per tonne of feed delivered is measured and reviewed on a monthly basis and any ideas for making improvements that result from this are shared.

Energy efficiency is improved by efficient vehicle planning, which increases utilisation and capacity fill. Tests with silo measuring systems are being conducted in the United Kingdom to better determine order timings and thus be able to plan more efficient loading resulting in lower emissions per tonne of product transported.

Various projects were introduced aimed at optimum deployment of trucks, minimising the number of empty trips made, efficient loading with larger trailers and encouraging drivers to increase their fuel economy.
