As part of the agreement, Rhenus will put two vehicles into operation, powered by renewable fuel supplied by Repsol. These trucks will make a daily round trip between the Rhenus hub in Irun and the Robert Bosch plants in Aranjuez and Madrid.
"Our partnership with Bosch underlines our ongoing commitment to innovation and the implementation of solutions that significantly reduce our impact on the environment and at the same time help our customers to achieve their sustainability goals," says Andoni Izquierdo, member of the Steering Committee of Rhenus Road Spain.
The renewable fuel these trucks are already using is an advanced, 100% renewable biofuel produced from waste materials such as used cooking oil and forest residues, providing an efficient and environmentally friendly alternative. It meets the sustainability certifications required by the European Union's Renewable Energy Directive and reduces carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by more than 80% compared to conventional fuels, without requiring any changes to the vehicle fleet.
This initiative places Rhenus ahead in the field of transport decarbonisation, taking a further stride towards its ambition of fully decarbonising its truck fleet by 2030. Additionally, it aligns with Bosch's aim for a more sustainable supply chain.
