LKW Walter will transport the majority of Dalli’s household and personal care products by rail. The two parties, which have cooperated since 2016 on the route between Vienna and Herne (Germany), have agreed to extend this partnership. The railway operator will undertake most of Dalli’s deliveries that were taking place by road haulage until now.

Apart from a commercial success, this development is also a strong statement of how the modal shift’s implementation should take place in practice. LKW Walter will operate up to eight weekly trips between Curtici, Romania, and Duisburg and Herne in Germany.

Difference already made

“Switching our transports onto rail is an important part of our sustainability strategy. LKW Walter is exactly the right partner for this”, said Theo Göbbels, Head of Logistics at Dalli. Indeed, the Dalli group’s corporate guidelines state that the company “acts in an ecologically responsible manner for the protection of the environment.” Over the years, this policy has been consistently implemented in the logistics, production and design of Dalli products.

Specifically, Dalli reduced its CO2 emissions to a third of its former footprint thanks to the new railway logistics concept developed with LKW Walter. Hopefully, now that the company is putting all its products on rail, the difference will become even more significant and prove that rail is indeed the greener transportation mode.
