Our drivers

Our Drivers are all trained in fuel efficient driving, and are constantly working to reduce their consumption of fuel, to reduce the cost and environmental impact.

The ongoing training of drivers also contributes to increasing road safety.

We carefully measure each lorry's fuel consumption, and our customers can get information on exactly how much their specifik transport has consumed in regards to fuel and the associated CO2 emissions.

Our vehicles

Our vehicles have a built-in idle module, which is a program that ensures that they do not idle for more than one minute and use unnecessary fuel. This is in accordance with the idle regulation, which applies in all major cities.

We ensure that the vehicles always have the optimum tire pressure to reduce fuel consumption and wear on tires. All newly purchased vehicles have wireless tire pressure monitoring.

Our lorrys are programmed not to drive over 85 km / h.

All newly purchased vehicles must at least meet the EURO 6 standard.

Garage and wash

The garage is equipped with solar cells on the roof. The solar cells supply most of the power we use in the workshop, but we still save on the power consumption; appliances that are not in use are switched off.
In our vehicle wash we use environmentally friendly soaps and water-saving nozzles to minimize water consumption and protect the environment as much as possible.
