When speaking sustainable transport, rail freight is sure winning. Rail freight has some unique environmental benefits and is a sustainable and climate-friendly transport solution that reduces CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. A shift from especially air- or road transport to rail freight can be very beneficial for the society and the environment.
With our environmentally friendly rail transport, we offer solutions that reduce CO2 emissions with up to 80% compared with conventional road transport.
Rail freight is to contribute to reducing the total co2 EMISSIONS
In 2011, the EU Commission adopted a target for the transport sector to reduce CO2 emissions within the sector by 60% by 2015. This was to happen by among others move cargo from air and road to rail. At the same time, medium-term rail travel for passengers was developed, including in particular the development of high-speed railways. By 2050 the transport sector will strive to obtain a neutral rail system, which also include the sectors suppliers of e.g. electricity. Within the energy field, a sub-target has been set, which is to reduce power consumption by 30% and by 2050 has reduced the power consumption with 50%. In addition, Nox and PM10 emissions and noise targets have been set.
The paris agreement
In 2015, 195 countries entered into the Paris Agreement, which is a climate agreement to ensure that man-made climate change is reduced. Here it was agreed that all countries included were to reduce CO2 emissions as quickly as possible. Further, all countries included were to ensure that future sustainable development is considered. In addition, together the countries must try to keep the earth's temperature rise below two degrees and work towards keeping this rise at one and a half degrees compared to 1850, where industrialization really started.
A shift from conventional transport solutions to rail freight can help in achieving the goals of the climate agreement.
As far as possible, we transport goods by train. We offer tailor made solutions where we most often combine sustainable rail freight with the truck's high flexibility to get the goods delivered right to the door. We are increasingly using trucks that meet the highest euro standards and operate in a way that uses the least diesel fuel.
Shortsea can also prove to be an optimal transport solution for both your company and the environment. Here we sail goods from, for example, Spain to Scandinavia instead of carrying it by truck. This leads to a bit longer transit time, but the solution is more environmentally friendly and often cheaper as well.
It is easy to book and in case of problems/delays we are notified.
Clear departures make it easy to see when to expect our goods will be delivered.
The staff are always friendly, happy and accommodating upon inquiries, which makes you in a good mood when talking to them.
We have tried other freight forwarders but has always returned to Lauritzen.
As we are located in the same city, Lauritzen has always been good at paying us a visit, if something has been missing, which has also contributed to very good relationships among the companies.
If something goes wrong, against expectations, Lauritzen quickly report this. And in case we need goods in a hurry they also find a solution to this. All information is passed on. That means a lot to us.
In addition, Lauritzen transport what we have to Spain, Norway and Sweden.
To us, Lauritzen is not a supplier but a partner.
For us at Garant Holstebro it is all about an end product of the highest quality which also means delivery of our products.
The cooperation that I have personally had with Lauritzen for many years now can only be described as excellent.
I send orders every week and all orders are handled professional. Each request is answered immediately and each case at the concerned factory is handled thoroughly so we always have our goods loaded in time, which means that we can comply with all our deliveries.
In case of accident, I receive an email or a call from the office immediately, so I can always give our customers a message about a possible change of delivery time.
I have to say that I rarely experience such a complete workflow as the staff perform at Lauritzen.
Incredible nice people to talk to and write with. I could mention some names, but I am sure they know who they are, and I am certain that all at Lauritzen performs equal.
When there occasionally are accidents by train, which Lauritzen are not an influencer on, they are good at informing of possible obstacles. Mean while they are also good at remembering our orders and always asking if other orders is to be transported back home. We are very satisfied with the cooperation.
Vi sætter endvidere pris på at det, så vidt muligt, er de samme chaufføre, der kommer ud til os igen og igen.
Sammenfattet ser vi at den service vi var vant til fra Lauritzen fra før, stadig er den samme. chaufførerne gør som de bliver bedt om / i overensstemmelse med vores HMS-krav, så vi er yderst tilfredse med opstarten.
