Optimized transport modes reduces environmental impact
Distribution set-up for customers located in Sao Paulo
Carriers previously collected goods in the SKF Distribution Centre in Jordanesia and goods were transported to the carriers’ hubs for sorting before being delivered to the final customer. The newly implemented carrier setup uses space at SKF's premises for sorting instead of sending the goods to an additional hub. This allows shorter distances to the customers in Sao Paulo, which decreased CO2 emissions. In addition to that, SKF Brazil changed its FTC forwarder where trucks of Euro 6 class are used for long distances.
Those two activities together led to a 30% CO2 reduction from first half of 2015 to first half of 2016.
