Nature and Society

Freightliner has become renowned for setting high standards across the rail freight industry.




Our core business of moving freight by rail has been proven to be more environmentally friendly than the road alternative by reducing carbon emissions and road congestion. On an average month Freightliner replaces 50,000 journeys and saves thousands of tonnes of CO2 - contributing to reducing the threat to global warming.
Recycling and waste management systems in place at all of our locations continue to lower our impact on the environment.
Freightliner believes it is important to give something back to the communities and environment in which we operate.

Trials of new containers for transport of biomass and coal

During January and February 2011 FPL arranged four trial demonstrations of new containers in cooperation with Innofreight. The containers are designed to transport bulk loads such as biomass and coal by rail. The events were held at the PGE GiEK Zespół Elektrociepłowni Bydgoszcz and attended by the representatives of coal mines, power plants as well as producers and suppliers of biomass.

We have successfully presented unloading of biomass and energy coal from Innofreight containers in winter conditions with the use of a forklift with rotator.
The trials yet again demonstrated that FPL is a rail operator committed to development and launching innovative logistic solutions for the rail market.
