“Emissions from global transport are responsible for one quarter of global CO2 emissions. You don’t need to say anything else to know that we have to act.”

Pamela Strauß (NEVEON) Team Lead

Making transport logistics more sustainable

Without logistics and transport, international trade would not be possible. As an interface between producers and suppliers and between buyers and end consumers, logistics is essential to global procurement and marketing operations. Procurement logistics is responsible for ensuring that all goods a company needs for its business and production are available in the right quantities, at the right time and at the right quality. Inbound logistics focuses mainly on the company’s ongoing supply of materials, i.e. purchasing and transporting goods to the production sites. Outbound logistics is responsible for distributing the finished products to customers.

SBT by 2023

Our performance


In individual cases dialog with suppliers and customers about transport has already begun.

Quality of data

We are continuing to work systematically on improving the quality of data in inbound and outbound logistics.

The job of logistics is to ensure the transport, storage, provision, procurement and distribution of goods, people, money, information and energy. This goes hand in hand with the need to manage and control all related tasks.
