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 are consolidating ports use for overseas export to Hitachinaka Port, which is near our production base, in an effort to reduce land transportation distances.
Moreover, until now, the trailer head that carried the container had to return to the shipping company once when unloading and pick up the empty container separately. By having the trailer head carrying the container for the next shipment take back the empty container that had arrived before, we have reduced the waste of the trailer head driving for empty shipments.
In FY 2022, the entire Hitachi Construction Machinery Group achieved an 58.5% reduction in transport-based CO2 per unit sold.
