As part of its sustainable development policy, Globtrans is committed to protecting the environment and reducing its environmental footprint. To achieve this, we use road hauliers whose vehicles are equipped to Euro 6 standards using Euro 6 catalytic converters and AdBlue. This technology eliminates over 30% of CO2 emissions. 80% of our land-based delivery transport is routed by rail to the port of shipment. This mode of pre-carriage transport enables us to significantly reduce our CO2 emissions.
