Safe and eco-friendly transport
Sustainable transport is about the safety and security of our drivers and passengers, and also the chickens we transport. It also covers the delivery quality for our customers and ensures that we have the most efficient and climate-smart transport solutions possible.
As part of our work to reduce climate impact from transport, we have been working with fuel suppliers since 2017 to install HVO-biodiesel filling stations at our plant in Valla and at our transport suppliers locations. All Swedish national transport vehicles driving Kronfågel products are running on 100% renewable HVO-biodiesel.
During spring 2020 we run a pilot project in Denmark with cooling trailers that are carbon-dioxide neutral, using a combination of electricity and axel-generated energy to cool our products. The fleet of transport also contains cooling trailers with solar panels on the roof, supporting power for the temperature control system when the engine is turned off. We require our transport suppliers to not only to comply with our Code of Conduct, but also to provide us with environmental data and use EURO 6 class vehicles. As a whole carbon dioxide emissions from our distribution transports fell by approximately 5 percent in 2019 compared with 2018.
