Global multimodal logistics operator DB Schenker has joined IRU as its newest corporate member, the international road transport organisation recently announced.
The company aims to collaborate more closely with the wider road transport sector on a range of issues and opportunities, including decarbonisation, digitalisation and the industry’s image and ability to attract and retain workers.
Joining IRU is important for us to better engage within the road transport sector and beyond. Working with IRU and its members will notably help us continue decarbonising our operations, with our sub-contractors and partners, sharing knowledge and experiences with the wider industry,” says DB Schenker CEO Jochen Thewes.
Jochen Thewes spoke at the recent launch event for IRU’s Green Compact to make global commercial road transport carbon neutral by 2050.
“I look forward to collaborating with them (DB Schenker – the ed.) in many areas, in particular on rolling out our Green Compact plan on carbon neutrality for global commercial road transport,” commented IRU Secretary General Umberto de Pretto on the news.
