Continental sponsors SHD Logistics Awards

Published: September 18, 2014 by Kirsty Adams

Continental is the official sponsor of the SHD Logistics Award category 'Environment/Sustainability' in 2015. We talk carbon reduction with the tyre manufacturer, and ask why it's so important to support this Award entry?

SHD: Why is it important to recognise measurable improvement in carbon reduction within a logistics operation?
Continental:
Logistics operations can often be linked to high carbon footprints and there are many areas along the logistics chain where huge reductions can be achieved.
