Reducing Energy Used in Transport
The Hitachi Construction Machinery Group is committed to energy conservation for the transport of its products and components etc.
In order to improve work efficiency and reduce logistics costs, we did away with external warehouses near Hitachinaka Port to develop activities such as optimization of the export port and inbound goods locations, and energy saving in operation.
In 2020, we started joint use of containers for import and export with the LIXIL Corporation, contributing to greater efficiency, further reduction of CO² emissions, and reduction of transportation costs through container round use initiatives. We are promoting the expansion of modal shift in domestic transportation.
In FY 2021, the entire Hitachi Construction Machinery Group achieved an 50.7% reduction in transport-based CO2 per unit sold.
