Switzerland-based provider of forwarding and logistics services, Panalpina, recently announced that Panalpina Singapore has launched new biodiesel trucks to serve L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific, one of their long-time global customers.

This new initiative is in alignment with their sustainability program – Sharing Beauty with All.

L’Oréal aims to have all its strategic suppliers to be participating in its supplier sustainability program by the year 2020. Panalpina Singapore has already attained this level one year ahead of schedule.

The new trucks owned and managed by Panalpina’s transport provider, will significantly reduce CO2 emissions from transportation of the L’Oréal personal care products by 20 per cent against their 2011 baseline, the new trucks will also contribute to Panalpina’s science-based target for subcontracted transport to reduce CO2 emissions by 25 per cent by the year 2030.

Biodiesel is derived from vegetable oil or animal fat and contains virtually no sulfur or aromatics, compared to diesel, and as the fuel is a direct replacement for diesel, no modifications need to be made to standard diesel engines. Singapore restaurants provide Panalpina with waste cooking oil with on average 4,000 liters are collected daily, 90 per cent of which is converted to usable fuel.

Country Manager for Panalpina Singapore, Gino Marzola said, “Panalpina has a commitment to sustainability, and we are proud to embark on this journey with L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific to reduce CO2 emissions. As demand for their shipments and island-wide delivery grows, so too will our fleet of trucks, but we are safe in the knowledge that each liter of biodiesel used will emit fewer harmful gases, resulting in cleaner air for all.”

L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific Director of Operations, Marc-Antoine Poulle added, “We are very pleased to collaborate with Panalpina to lead the change in our sustainable operation. The new biodiesel trucks in place is a demonstration of our commitment to reducing our environmental impacts while achieving our ambition for long-term growth.”
