October 05, 2020: Horoz Bollore Logistics has launched green logistics deliveries for its national distributions and started with points of sale and warehouses in Istanbul, Turkey using a hybrid van.

The company selected the Ford Hybrid Transit Cargo van with 2.0 litres Ford EcoBlue, 185 PS horsepower diesel engine and Euro 6.2 emission standards for its greener logistics and supply chain solutions in Turkey. While replacing the previous model, the new van has the potential to lower CO2 emissions by 20 to 30 percent; with 0.74 grams / kilometres CO2, the vehicle's emissions fall below European emissions standards.

"Environmental awareness is a very important part of our philosophy and company policy," said Hakan Yaman, general manager of Horoz Bollore Logistics Turkey.

"We all must be proud and happy to make even a tiny contribution for a greener environment in which our descendance will live in the future. We believe that all the stakeholders in logistics industry must have the sense of responsibility for nature which we mishandled so far. And now it's time for reimbursement. We call all the actors to support environmental sustainability. No matter how big or small their contributions are but at least they must try before it is too late," he added.

Soon, Horoz Bollore Logistics will increase the number of hybrid vans and enlarge the coverage of green logistics services within the country. This investment marks a first step and contributes to the gradual decarbonisation of the transport and logistics sector.

Through its CSR programme %u2018Powering Sustainable Logistics', Bollore Logistics is committed to provide sustainable supply chain solutions for its customers. As the need for sustainability continues to grow, having low carbon impact transportation plans becomes more critical for road freight.
