Rhenus and Shell Decarbonise the Transportation of Goods


The Rhenus Group and Shell will be sharing ideas more closely in future to forge ahead with decarbonising goods traffic on the roads. Both companies are working on a joint strategy to significantly reduce CO2 emissions in the long term. The partners are connected to each other through their long-standing business relationship and their efforts to become climate-neutral companies.

Sustainability is one of the fundamental corporate values of the Rhenus Group. Carsten Hölzer, the Managing Director of Rhenus Freight Road Sales & Management, describes the fundamental question. “Do we first need to expand the infrastructure or the fleet? This question of who should start investing and who should bear the risk has become superfluous thanks to our partnership with Shell. We’re jointly drawing up a long-term strategy – much more quickly and efficiently than if we were doing it independently.”

The critical issue here involves discovering interrelated points for Rhenus and Shell, which offer the potential for more sustainable logistics operations. For example, this means seeing where Shell, the supplier, can make available CO2-neutral solutions and where Rhenus, the services provider, can implement these sustainable transport strategies. Both companies are keeping their eye on the entire spectrum of decarbonisation to jointly tackle the challenges posed by international supply chains. Experts from both companies recently discussed some initial ideas and specific measures, such as alternative fuels and drive systems ranging from bio-LNG to hydrogen and even e-mobility.

Sönke Kleymann, the Managing Director of euroShell GmbH & Co. KG, emphasises the project’s relevance. “We’re delighted to be able to further develop our working relationship with Rhenus – particularly in the field of decarbonisation. We’re already contributing a broad range of products as alternatives via our Shell Card, and our partners and customers can make use of them. We’ve found a partner in Rhenus, with which we’ve already enjoyed a long-standing business relationship, and it’s prepared to travel along the pathway of decarbonisation with us. Working together, we’ll set milestones for sustainable transport operations.” About Rhenus The Rhenus Group is one of the leading logistics specialists with global business operations and an annual turnover amounting to EUR 7.0 billion. 37,500 employees work at 970 business sites and develop innovative solutions along the complete supply chain.
