SunPine is extending and broadening its logistics collaboration with Wibax. The contract covers transportation and storage of products used by SunPine in their production of biofuels. The logistics collaboration is important from a sustainability perspective, where the product flows of Wibax and Sunpine complement each other, to minimise the mileage driven by tanker trucks without load. Wibax offers a logistics solution which covers all of Sweden, an operation involving about 20 employees.
As a continuation of the press release published on July 6, 2020, announcing the acquisition of 100% of the shares in a leading Finnish group in the field of storage and handling of liquid chemical products and bio oils, Baltic Tank, Wibax is happy to report that the transaction was finalised on September 1, 2020.
The Wibax group is growing rapidly, whilst concurrently there is a shortage of drivers in the logistics industry. There is a need for more truck drivers in several locations, but primarily in Piteå and Skellefteå. Wibax Logistics wishes to create a situation where more drivers are available to recruit. Therefore, we are starting a driving licence training programme of our own, and offer trainee positions.
We have decided to label the operations at our headquarters with the Swedish “Kranmärkt” label, certifying that we only use tap water, as it is better for the environment than packaged water. Tap water is always locally produced, and the production is highly energy efficient. The fact that our tap water in Piteå is fresh and of high quality is yet another reason why we have decided to label our operations with “Kranmärkt”.
In 2020, Earth Overshoot Day occurred on August 22. This marks the day on which we have officially used more resources in 2020, than our planet can renewably produce in the entire year. The coronavirus pandemic has had an impact, and reduced our environmental footprint, placing Earth Overshoot Day 24 days later in the year, than last year. This is good, but we need to keep making progress, to create sustained, sustainable change.
