The key issue here involves discovering interrelated points for Rhenus and Shell, which offer the potential for more sustainable logistics operations.

For example, this means seeing where Shell, the supplier, can make available CO2-neutral solutions and where Rhenus, the services provider, can implement these sustainable transport strategies.

Both companies are keeping their eye on the entire spectrum of decarbonisation in order to jointly tackle the challenges posed by international supply chains.

Experts from both companies recently discussed some initial ideas and specific measures such as alternative fuels and drive systems ranging from bio-LNG to hydrogen and even e-mobility.

 “Do we first need to expand the infrastructure or the fleet? This question of who should start investing and who should bear the risk has become superfluous thanks to our partnership with Shell. We’re jointly drawing up a long-term strategy – and much more quickly and efficiently than if we were doing it on our own,”  said Carsten Hölzer, Managing Director of Rhenus Freight Road Sales & Management, describing the fundamental question many hauliers face.

Sönke Kleymann, Managing Director of euroShell GmbH & Co. KG, added:

“We’ve found a partner in Rhenus, with which we’ve already enjoyed a long-standing business relationship, and it’s prepared to travel along the pathway of decarbonisation with us. Working together, we’ll set milestones for sustainable transport operations.”
