Logistics provider Gebrüder Weiss and consumer goods specialist Henkel have expanded their existing more than 25 year logistics partnership with an new rail route.
Formerly transported by truck along the entire route, the products from Henkel’s Laundry & Home Care division are now being loaded onto Helrom’s horizontal trailer wagons in Vienna, reducing CO2 emissions by 500 metric tonnes each year.
The delivery concept was jointly developed and implemented by Gebrüder Weiss, Henkel and Helrom, and benefits from being directly connected to Henkel’s factory services.
“The trailer hub is located right next to our site in Düsseldorf. That means we can unload the products straight from the wagons and shortcut them to our warehouses. The train link enables us to avoid truck transport, decrease CO2 emissions and therefore make our processes more sustainable,” explains Patrick Csar, Logistics and Export Manager for Supply Chain Laundry & Home Care at Henkel.
