Our recommended logistics provider, Kühne+Nagel, are pioneers in developing sustainable solutions in what is an extremely hard-to-abate sector  – transport and logistics.

K+N have been exploring sustainable fuel sources, including HVO fuel (hydrotreated vegetable oil), which work in any diesel engine, whilst reducing carbon emissions by up to 90%. A recent case study showed how K+N virtually offset 6000L of HVO fuel on a project to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona for one of their customers.

In addition, Kühne+Nagel are always looking at consolidation options to ensure UK exhibitors are sharing delivery vehicles wherever possible. They aim to receive exhibitor freight at their purpose-built facility in London before consolidating for onward, shared transport to the required exhibition location. This solution is not only more sustainable but can also be budget relieving to ensure your exhibiting overheads are as lean as possible.
