Ocean Network Express (ONE) has started offering its customers in France the option to transport their cargo inland using biofuel-powered trucks, in partnership with logistics company Transmanut.
The trucks — which operate in the Le Havre area — will use Oleo100 fuel, which is made from 100% French rapeseed residue.
The fuel provides a 60% reduction in CO2 emissions and is a completely renewable energy resource.
Transmanut is one of the main suppliers of ONE's road services in France, and they provide dedicated drivers for all of ONE’s cargo deliveries.
Thierry Le Moal, head of operations for ONE France, commented, "We are excited to be working with Transmanut, a longstanding trusted inland haulage vendor, to offer this new green inland option to our customers in France. ONE is always looking for innovative ways to reduce CO2 emissions and find sustainable solutions to lower our impact on the environment. We thank Transmanut for helping us to make greener journeys."
Dominique Berthauld, CEO of Transmanut, said, "Six years ago, Transmanut decided to invest in the first biofuel trucks in the French market using Oleo100 fuel. 600,000 Km later and with a positive return experience, we have the ambition to develop our biofuel fleet in the container sector and have acquired two new trucks this month."
"We are pleased to be deploying these trucks into service, helping ONE's customers to significantly reduce CO2 emissions. Further, biofuel trucks will be delivered by the end of this year to reinforce our green fleet," he added.
The use of biofuel is just one of the many ways ONE is trying to meet its goal of achieving net zero by 2050, which includes scope 3 emissions from external suppliers.
