Various affiliate companies of the Otto Group purchase some of their merchandise in geographically distant procurement markets such as the Far East. Different modes of transport by sea, air and rail are used to transport these goods.
In addition to the established modes of transport of sea and air freight, the train can also be used to ship goods from China on the main leg of their journey. Significant savings of CO2 compared with air freight and similar CO2 savings to those of sea freight can be achieved using this intercontinental rail transport. With an average duration of less than 18 days, this form of transport is faster than by ship and more climate-friendly than air freight.
The project partner in this case is Hermes Germany GmbH (an Otto Group affiliate company).
