Panalpina Singapore launches new biodiesel trucks to serve L’Oréal

April 1, 2019 |

In Singapore, Panalpina Singapore has launched new biodiesel trucks to serve its global customer L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific in alignment with their sustainability program – Sharing Beauty with All. By 2020, 100 percent of L’Oréal’s strategic suppliers will be participating in their supplier sustainability program, and Panalpina has reached this milestone ahead of schedule. The use of these new trucks, owned and managed by Panalpina’s transport provider, is one of the initiatives that will enable the global leader in beauty to reduce CO2 emissions from transportation of their personal care products by 20 percent against their 2011 baseline. This is also in line with Panalpina’s science-based target for subcontracted transport to reduce CO2 emissions by 25 percent by 2030 (baseline 2017).

The new trucks currently comprise a prime mover (40ft container) and a 24ft truck run on biodiesel, a fuel that is derived from vegetable oil or animal fat. The biodiesel that powers Panalpina’s trucks comes from waste cooking oil collected from restaurants across Singapore. On average, 4,000 liters are collected daily, 90 percent of which is converted to usable fuel.
