25 percent CO2 savings through optimised logistics concept - SALOMON FoodWorld and FVZ Convenience receive Lean & Green Award
Sustainability in focus - for Vion Food Service and its two companies SALOMON FoodWorld and FVZ Convenience, the topic is relevant on many levels. As part of their sustainability strategy, SALOMON and FVZ have now further optimised their logistics. The goal: significant CO2 savings in the transport sector. This was recognised with the Lean & Green Award.
Optimised route planning, more modern vehicle fleets
FVZ Convenience and SALOMON FoodWorld rely on a broad package of measures in their logistics processes to achieve 25% CO2 savings. A newly adapted logistics & production system is to result in optimised route planning in the future, the aim of which is to avoid empty runs and transfers between two locations. In addition, the subcontractors' vehicle fleets will be modernised and more green electricity will be used. The concept was implemented in close cooperation with the long-standing partner Nordfrost, represented by Dr. Falk Bartels.
25 percent less CO2 emissions
The implementation of the measures is expected to reduce the company's own emissions by almost 25 percent already this year. Hartmut Jung, Director Supply Chain: "It is important for us to make a significant contribution to Vion Food Service's comprehensive sustainability strategy in the area of logistics as well. Accordingly, we are proud that we can permanently achieve a CO2 saving of 25 percent through the optimisations." SALOMON FoodWorld and FVZ Convenience received the Lean & Green Award from GS1 Germany in March 2022 for their restructuring plans.
