Sustainability

Responsibility – founded on tradition.

We are a modern, quality-oriented provider of logistics services with a long-established tradition and, as such, bear responsibility not only for our employees and our customers’ products, but also for the environment. Today, sustainable actions are an essential element of our corporate philosophy.


For us, sustainability means the attachment of equal importance to social, ecological and economic interests. We commission an independent provider to conduct an annual assessment of the success of our sustainability strategy and evaluate it with the aid of a sustainability rating. We are currently ranked among the top 25 per cent of companies assessed in our industry segment.
