Finnish Transport Company HAVI Logistics Adds Four Scania Biogas Trucks To Fleet Serving McDonald’s

HAVI Logistics, a supply chain management, packaging, and logistics specialist based in Duisburg, Germany, recently added four Scania biogas trucks to its Finnish fleet as part of a plan to phase out fossil-fuel operations under a Europe-wide agreement it made in 2017 with Scania and McDonald’s,” Scania explains.

While the rest of the company’s fleet in Finland will remain diesel-powered, these new hydrotreated vegetable oil-powered additions, coupled with HAVI’s ongoing efforts to improve the efficiency of its Logistics Centre, will lower the company’s carbon emissions by 1,388 tonnes (1,530 U.S. tons) per year. That figure, according to Scania, is “equivalent to approximately 8.8 million passenger car kilometres” (5.47 million miles).

A Team Effort

While Scania does its part to put more sustainable and efficient vehicles on the road all across Europe, McDonald’s is working to lower its overall carbon footprint with biodegradable packaging, recycling initiatives, and more. McDonald’s expects its transport partners to take a similar approach for their part, and HAVI worked quickly to answer that call. “It’s very important for us to meet the aspirations of our customers and staff,” says Mikael Tuompo, managing director of HAVI Logistics in Finland. “That requires taking swift action for more sustainable transport.”
