Shipments by electric trains are the most eco-friendly alternative available in the market. More than 90 percent of Green Cargo’s rail freight operations are carried out by electric trains, about 5 percent by diesel trains and a couple of percent by truck. This has enabled our freight transportation to be approved as a Good Environmental Choice.
We are currently facilitating many companies in attaining their environmental targets with respect to CO2 emissions. On a daily basis, we transport freight corresponding to 10,000 truckloads — equivalent to a 300-km long convoy of trucks. Our efforts are not limited to a comprehensive reduction of CO2 emissions, but also include improving road safety.
The Swedish government and the EU have set high targets for reducing climate impact. The transportation sector accounts for about 30 percent of CO2 emissions in Sweden and the volume of road freight is increasing. Rail companies and well-established road-freight carriers who wish to invest in both the environment and sound working conditions for drivers are facing stiff price competition. Green Cargo is working with our partners to establish a freight industry that — we who operate and those who engage us — can all be proud of.
By engaging Green Cargo, you can rest assured in the knowledge that your shipment is delivered with minimal climate impact, sound working conditions for the employees and a strict emphasis on safety and long-term economic sustainability.
We are certified in accordance with ISO 14001:2004, ISO 9001:2008 and OHSAS 18001:2007. Read more »
