Environmental Measures

Reducing CO2 Emissions From Vehicle Exhaust

Environmentally aware transportation; constantly striving to reduce freight loads. As the transport industry is the heart of the company's business, Fukuyama Transporting bears a social obligation to reduce freight-related CO2 emissions. The company pursues a wide range of initiatives to pursue this goal.

Modal shift

Rail and sea transport produce only 1/8 and 1/4 of CO2 emissions respectively compared to road transport. Fukuyama Transporting is furthering a modal shift from trucks to rail and sea to reduce the environmental impact.

We are committed to re-cycling waste and unused materials throughout all the company's business units.
