03 Nov For the first time in the company’s history and the environment
Rostock, 04. November 2021
Rostock Trimodal GmbH, a subsidiary of EUROPORTS Germany GmbH & Co.KG, handled this year 100,000 units for the first time in the company’s history, happening already at the end of October. The trend „more trucks on rail“ is becoming more and more important. And this is very essential for the preservation of our environment. Because a truck causes approx. 104 grams of greenhouse gas emissions per ton of freight volume and kilometer. By rail, on the other hand, the figure is only about 19 grams per tkm. Road freight alone is responsible for about 50 million tons of CO2 annually. To absorb just one ton of CO2, a tree must grow for 80 years.
With great foresight in 2021 we invested in an additional 740 m track to meet the needs for a new generation of freight trains and continue to play a major role in drastically reducing CO2 emissions together with our customers and employees.
Did you know that combined transport in Rostock saved approx. 115,000 t of CO2 in 2020?
