By the end of 2020, DB Schenker wants to reduce the CO2 emissions of its entire distribution network in Norway to zero. The Oslo City Hub project is the first step towards achieving this ambitious goal.
CO2 emissions from the new logistics hub in the Norwegian capital will be reduced by 80%, thanks to the use of bicycles and electric trucks. By 2020, all DB Schenker facilities in Norway will have zero CO2 emissions and by 2030 the operator will have replaced all diesel vehicles with EVs.
Oslo City Hub is part of the Electric City Technology Park located in Filipstadkaia, in the centre of Oslo. Electric City is an initiative of the capital of Norway, which is applying for the status of the European Green Capital in 2019.
In Norway, we have been prioritising environmental protection for many years and over the past two years we have invested heavily in providing environmentally friendly logistics solutions for business and industry by investing in electric vehicles,” said Lars Sveen.
