7. Control

The company states how and what performance indicators related to sustainability are used in its regular internal planning and control processes. It discloses how suitable processes ensure reliability, comparability and consistency of the data used for internal management and external communication.

Our controlling team evaluates our KPIs. In business assessment meetings, these KPIs are then used for strategic decisions.

Reducing fleet consumption by 0.10 l per 100 km per year is one of our environmental goals. This goal was first reached after the introduction of our diesel control system and has been reached every year since then. The development of new vehicle generations of tractor units by our suppliers also offers some potential: Thus, a further reduction of the fleet’s average fuel consumption per 100 km and consequently a reduction of CO2 emissions is projected.

For fuel control, we have integrated an IT system that works with a unique accuracy. Tank sensor readings and data transmissions via GPS are monitored by a sophisticated algorithm. A measuring accuracy of 1.5% of the tank scale is guaranteed. With this system, our fuel bills and the actual amount fuelled are automatically checked for conformity. We also receive reports about fuelling irregularities, sorted by vehicle or location.

A detailed evaluation of the energy consumption will be carried out by means of the energy audit that is going to be performed in 2020. We are going to use the auditor’s suggestions to define new environmental goals and publish these in the Sustainability Report 2020.

An increase in the number of intermodal transports is an important goal of Anhalt Logistics. Shifting traffic flows to more environmentally friendly modes of transports is one of the key objectives of the German and European traffic policy.

In the light of objective competition conditions, the individual modes of transport are to be used or interlinked according to their strengths. To reduce CO2 emissions and energy consumption in the European Union, the European Commission considers combined transport one of the most important instruments.

Setting up a young team called “Intermodal”, which is already working digitally, is Anhalt’s contribution to this kind of climate protection policy.

Anhalt Logistics uses the following KPIs:
  • increase in intermodal transport
  • reduction of paper consumption by further digitalization processes
  • lowering average diesel consumption of truck fleet in liters/100 km
  • reduction of water consumption
  • reduction of gas consumption
  • reduction of electricity consumption
  • reduction of complaint rate
  • reduction of the number of damages
  • increase in customer satisfaction
  • increase in employee satisfaction
  • reduction of empty miles
These KPIs are reviewed and evaluated during annual audits and management reviews.
