Fleet planning by involving differentiated modes of transport (short-sea, train connections) and routes planning tools favors in saving CO2 emission and efficient asset utilization.
EDI
We pursue implementation of EDI solutions in every stage of our daily activities: from order acceptance to invoicing stage. Aim to implement e-CMR together with our partners.
Novel equipment and alternative fuel
Fleet we operate with is EURO VI standard and not older than 2,5 years on average. We constantly explore possibilities to increase usage of fossil-free fuels for our EURO VI trucks along with possibilities to onboard trucks running on alternative fuel.

Sustainability means a better future for all of us. We have taken the necessary steps to promote a greener lifestyle amongst our employees from consuming less energy in our facilities and properties to encouraging the sorting of waste within the company for recycling and waste disposal.
Sponsorship programs
We stand up for the community, the environment and sport. Therefore, we support and empower positive values, healthy habits, and education for the community stakeholders.
