Sustainability & Certificates

Economy, ecology and social issues.

Uhlhorn Group’s mission is to contribute to sustainable through better balanced economic trade that fosters both economic and social development.

Our commitment to sustainability is visible at every stage of the value chain. Through a series of actions, we aim to achieve the environmental friendly planning. Possible synergies between different logistics chains and means of transport are optimally coordinated.

We only use vehicles that are state of the art and comply with current emission standards. We also participate in pilot projects for innovative drive systems and use active route optimization systems to avoid empty runs.

Our employees receive an ongoing training in driving safety and environmentally conscious driving. We work closely with SVG Bremen eG in this regard. We are proud to say that fuel consumption has been steadily reduced in recent years.

We also offer individual trainings in the commercial area to improve the skills of our employees.
We offer vocational education and training in the professions relevant to our industry at our various locations.
