Dibella takes initiative to reduce carbon dioxide

Bocholt, Germany

As a step towards climate-neutral transport, Dibella's long-standing forwarding partner Hamacher was taken over by the sustainably committed logistics specialist Heppner at the end of 2018. Ralf Hellmann, Managing Director, Dibella, says that, with their first sustainability report, they introduced the monitoring of their carbon dioxide emissions and found out that the transport of textiles produces the most climate gases. They have therefore consistently switched to sea freight. However, they still see a need for optimisation from the port of Rotterdam to the customer or to the warehouse. After the takeover of their long-standing forwarding partner Hamacher by the logistics specialist Heppner, there is now improvement in climate friendly delivery. He added that the companies together want to look for solutions to make the "last miles" of their deliveries climate gas neutral.

The CSR strategies of both Dibella and Heppner has environmental protection as priority. Dibella is a logistics company, which originated from France and focuses on the environmentally friendly transport of goods and is investing heavily in a carbon dioxide-neutral vehicle fleet.

Spedition Heppner, with its origins in Alsace, is a family-owned company with worldwide operations. More than a decade ago, the logistics specialist began recording the carbon dioxide emissions released by its fleet of vehicles and steadily reducing them. With a mix of gas, bio-fuel and electric drive, the discharge of greenhouse gases caused by the company's trucks is to be reduced by 20% by the year 2025 and the entire fleet should be diesel-free.
