The increase in empty running is partly due to our acquisition of Special Cargo which was integrated into our operational system mid 2019. Their empty running has been higher due to their niche type of equipment.
The share of forwarded volumes of our total haulier costs decreased from 2018 to 2019. Purchasing transportation services from third parties does not include their potential empty running in our calculations, so when the share of forwarders decreases, the registration of empty kilometres will increase.
With kilometres, fuel and CO2 savings as benefits, we will continue to focus on reducing empty running and strengthen our efforts.
