GEFCO France, Gardien Transports test renewable diesel in car transporters
GEFCO France and Gardien Transports recently began testing renewable diesel made from waste oils and fats in two car transporters distributing new vehicles in the Hauts-de-France region of northern France.
This one-year project, which is utilizing Altens’ branded PUR-XTL hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), supports GEFCO France’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions from its finished vehicles logistics operations.
“Like GEFCO France, Gardien Transports has signed the Objectif CO2 charter to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Frédéric Briand, chief operating officer of finished vehicle logistics at GEFCO France. “Our partner is committed to moving the transportation and logistics business forward. Gardien Transports’ values reflect our own, providing all the more reason to support its efforts.”
The tests are part of GEFCO France’s larger commitment to a more sustainable logistics sector in its European home country.
