    Sustainable Logistics Forum

    This is our hub for sustainable ideas and futuristic approaches – this is where we create tomorrow.

    For people and the planet

    The climate change and sustainable development are central challenges to us, our partners and the global customers. Only together we are able to make a step towards the future of smart and sustainable logistics. So our 150th anniversary marks the launch of our first Sustainable Logistics Forum.

    First year, first movement

    In June 2022, we brought together customers, partners and industry experts from all over the world to discuss how to make the world of transportation and logistics more sustainable. We initiated this forum to go deeper into the topics related to climate change, sustainability and overall ESG challenges.

    "Because this challenge cannot be solved alone, we have initiated our first Sustainable Logistics Forum."
