Acting responsibly in every respect

For us, acting sustainably means striking a balance between economic performance, social commitment and responsibility for the environment. Our goal is to include all three perspectives in our decisions and to anchor this holistic approach deeply in all processes – every day, at all levels.

We have assigned eleven concrete fields of action to the three supporting pillars ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL and ECONOMIC, which are of great importance to us and also to our stakeholders. Here we strive for change and want to do our part to contribute to progress.

Newsflashes

Award-winning climate protection

Our climate protection measures have once again received awards. The online portal Statista and the business magazine Capital rank BLG LOGISTICS among the most climate-conscious companies in Germany. Out of 2,000 companies surveyed, in 2021 we came 49th among those companies that have achieved the highest reductions in their greenhouse gas emissions over the past five years.

Newsflashes

5,368

Eight levels, 32 charging points for electric vehicles, 2,800 LED lights and exclusive parking space for 5,368 Kia vehicles: The third “P3” multi-story car park at BLG AutoTerminal Kelheim has successfully gone into operation. The car terminal is more than just a strong location in the international automotive logistics network; it is also an example of sustainable on one of the hall roofs at the terminal in 2019; now a second is being planned for the roof of the P3.

Newsflashes

1.7 million

One of the world’s largest shipping companies, Hyundai Glovis, has big plans: As part of a joint venture with BLG LOGISTICS, Hyundai Glovis intends to use Bremerhaven as a European hub for its automobile transports between Asia and Europe. BLG is thus gaining a strong partner at AutoTerminal Bremerhaven, one of the world’s largest automotive hubs with 1.7 million vehicles handled per year. The terminal will nevertheless remain open to all shipping companies as a universal port.
