Wibax needs you in the future! Please visit us at the exhibition in Umeå on August 29-31, you find us in showcase 2031. Welcome to create GOOD CHEMISTRY with us!
Wibax Logistics will be investing approximately 20 million SEK to purchase a total of five new tanker trucks in 2019. This will give us a vehicle fleet of about 50 tanker trucks, delivering liquid chemicals and bio oils to customers, primarily in the paper and pulp industry but also other industries too.
The power over logistics largely lies with the companies and organisations that purchase transport services. Buyers of transport services decide how much they want to pay and when they want the goods delivered. This situation is not particularly sustainable in any regard, whether we consider safety, environmental issues, social responsibility or economy.
However, as logistics providers and haulage contractors, we can do our part through leading by example and showing what we do to act responsibly, drive safely and plan climate-friendly tansports. In doing so, we can influence not only transport purchasers to make better decisions, but also the ones requesting their services; the end customers.
The ongoing climate crisis creates a need for bio oil as a complementary fuel, one that is both green and economic. The market has shifted in recent years as more and more organisations are making it their responsibility to create a sustainable future. Today, it makes both environmental and financial sense to use bio oil, as it is tax exempt, whilst tax exemptions for fossil fuels have been drastically reduced over the last couple of years.
Wibax Industrial has installed a tank and other equipment to replace fossil fuels with bio oil at the Skanska plant in Östersund. We are now filling that tank with bio oil and Skanska will thus have another plant delivering asphalt with fossil-free heating.
Örjan Svensson, 52, from Gällivare, is Wibax’ new Logistics Manager. He will have general responsibility for managing and developing the operations of the company’s logistics and cistern sites. In broad terms, his role will be to coordinate improvement initiatives, whilst helping the organisation and its staff develop.
