Ocean Network Express (ONE) will start using METRANS trains to transport containers between European ports and the hinterland. ONE is the sixth largest container shipping company in the world. Its shift to rail transportation for continental services indicates that rail freight cannot be avoided when trying to meet environmental goals.

METRANS will transport ONE’s containers between central Europe and the ports of Hamburg and Bremerhaven in Germany and Koper in Slovenia. The partnership is very well targeted since ONE aims to benefit from METRANS’ CO2 neutral certification.

Carbon-neutral certificates

METRANS’ operations and equipment are certified by the independent German accreditation body TÜV for their green profile. Hybrid and electric locomotives and electrified terminal handling processes make the difference in this case as part of the METRANS HHLA Pure project that aims to make port-hinterland transport CO2 neutral.

ONE aims to benefit from this not only by making its supply chain more sustainable but also by being able to provide green transport certificates to its customers. “Procuring the TÜV-certified services allows ONE to pass on their eco-conscious efforts to their carrier haulage customers by providing carbon-neutral certificates on request”, explained the company.

Being a scam victim can be depressing. you were given empty promises. they usually stop replying after achieving their aim which hurts even more. i have been there too as i was too ambitious and wanted financial security which made me invest a huge chunk of my life’s savings. i never thought i would be getting back and already lost hope until i found a recovery team at Remotespytech(@)gmailc0m and contacted them and they got my funds back completely without hassle or hidden fees
