By signing the “Objectif CO2” charter in 2009, drawn up in line with the conclusions of the environmental forum organised by the government, the Groupe Montmur has demonstrated its commitment to providing more responsible transport services.
Strategic choices in logistics chain management
For many years, Montmur has sought to control its environmental impact by developing its activities in such a way as to reduce its carbon footprint whilst optimising your supply chain.
With this in mind, we are committed to developing more innovative and environmentally-friendly transport solutions such as the combined rail/-road transport system, which we have been using for over 10 years
We place great importance on optimising loads by improving the fill level of our lorries and employing two-level lorries in order to reduce the number of vehicles on the road and the number of empty kilometres travelled.
Our 3-year fleet renewal policy, introduced to ensure that we are using vehicles which cause less pollution, as per the new Euro V standard on exhaust gas emissions, means we are now managing our business in a much more environmentally-friendly manner.
Awareness of environmental issues
Thanks to dedicated in-house training, all our drivers drive economically, rationally and in a controlled manner, thus limiting fuel consumption, reducing wear-and-tear on equipment and improving safety.
