More and more cities have some kind of restriction on inner-city transport. Almost every city or major town already have restrictions on exhaust emissions. On top of that, a lot of especially older city centres have various weight and size limitations or have limited access. Furthermore a lot of cities are reviewing their greenhouse gas emissions and are discussing to introduce CO₂ emissions limits or even CO₂ neutral transport (for instance electric) in near future.
Low CO2 emission
When there is a weight limit of 7,5 Ton or 12 Ton the efficiency drops and CO₂ emission goes up with standard beverage delivery trucks. But not with the lightweight inner-city concept of Duotank. With this system you are able to maintain or even lower your CO2 emissions.
Even when larger volumes need to be delivered especially the lightweight 5.000 liter variant still has a low CO₂ emission compared to traditional larger delivery solutions.
When the brewery is at a distance the light weight tank beer truck can be combined with a clever mobile city hub. In this way you can optimise your inner-city transport and save 23-42% on CO2 emissions. Or even go for zero with a full electric solution.
In our Whitepaper you can read everything about the differences between the different delivery possibilities. Or calculate yourself how much saving you can achieve in our calculation program.
