Developments and advancements in e-mobility, including freight transport, are progressing faster than ever before. This is evident not only in the logistics sector but also in the waste management industry. Sascha Hähnke links both areas as he is responsible for sustainable transport concepts as the Managing Director of REMONDIS Sustainable Services, a sister company of Rhenus. Even after his previous role as Managing Director of Rhenus Transport, he continues to accompany the introduction and testing of alternative propulsion methods for road freight transport at Rhenus.
In the podcast ‘Logistics People Talk’, Sascha Hähnke provides an update on the Rhenus projects involving hydrogen and long-range electric propulsion, as well as developments in combustion engines using HVO as a synthetic fuel.
He firmly believes that all available alternative propulsion systems will run in parallel in the future. The challenge, as emphasised by Hähnke, will be to establish parallel refuelling and charging infrastructure for electric charging stations, hydrogen and traditional fuels, and to provide enough charging stations for both passenger and freight transport. For more updates and initial findings from the projects and tests conducted in recent years, tune in to the podcast.
