In the rapidly world is evolving, direct reaching to raw materials and final products increase their importance day by day. This situation, on the other hand, constantly increases the importance of the logistics sector and ensures that it remains on the agenda. The amount of emissions released to the atmosphere, especially during logistics operations, is increasing day by day. Since it is unthinkable to develop a concept without a trailer to reduce emissions in logistics operations, we took part in the ZEFES project as an organization to serve and contribute to the 2050 goals of a sustainable world to remove carbon footprint in the maximum and the European Union.

What in ZEFES?

Within the scope of the project, our company will develop B-trailer and e-trailer solutions, which will serve to truck and trailer combinations to be used in new generation of zero-emission logistics operations, together with ZEFES consortium partners, in line with its goal of becoming the world’s first carbon neutral continent by 2050. In this way, as a company, all R&D, production and know-how will be reachable for the ZEFES project in order for the European Union to reach its targets for the year 2050.
