Hegelmann Group's "Mission Green" Initiative - Leading the Charge with Volvo FM 500 Electric Trucks in Germany

In the pursuit of sustainability and innovation within the logistics industry, Hegelmann Group Germany has embarked on a groundbreaking journey. As part of its « Mission Green » initiative, the company has integrated the Volvo FM 500 Electric Trucks into its fleet. This case study delves into the objectives, implementation, performance, and impact of deploying these electric trucks, marking a significant step towards reducing the company’s carbon footprint and leading the logistics sector toward a more sustainable future. 

Project Overview 

The Volvo FM 500 Electric Truck, known for its efficiency, reliability, and zero-emission operation, represents the forefront of green transportation solutions. Hegelmann Group’s decision to incorporate these trucks into its fleet for a fixed-route operation, which started on February 6th, with each truck covering 5,000 km monthly, signifies a bold move toward operational sustainability. This initiative underscores the company’s commitment to environmental stewardship and innovation. 

Operational Performance 

Efficiency and Reliability 

The operational efficiency of the Volvo FM 500 Electric Trucks has been exemplary. Compared to traditional diesel trucks, the electric trucks have demonstrated significant energy savings and reduced operational costs, without compromising on performance. Driver feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, highlighting the superior handling, comfort, and overall driving experience of the electric trucks. 

Environmental Impact 

The transition to electric trucks has had a profound impact on Hegelmann Group’s carbon emissions. By replacing diesel trucks with Volvo FM 500 Electric models, the company has significantly reduced its CO2 emissions, aligning with its « Mission Green » initiative’s goals. This effort contributes to the broader sustainability targets of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and showcases Hegelmann Group’s role as an environmental leader in the logistics industry. 

Conclusion and Future Directions 

Hegelmann Group’s integration of Volvo FM 500 Electric Trucks into its fleet has been a landmark achievement in the « Mission Green » initiative. The project has demonstrated the environmental, operational, and economic benefits of adopting electric vehicles in logistics. Looking ahead, Hegelmann Group plans to expand its fleet of electric trucks, exploring additional routes and further innovations in green logistics. This initiative not only positions Hegelmann Group as a pioneer in sustainable transportation but also sets a new standard for the logistics industry at large.

On the road, a driver needs parking, solid rest, and good food. Those are basic needs. Hegelmann Hub is not just a spacious TIR parking, but also offers comfortable accommodation, delicious food at the restaurant, as well as a modern workshop and tachograph service (provided by Tacho24).

The HT Trucks & Parts workshop, covering an area of 13 000 m², also includes a Regional Vehicle Inspection Station, a paint shop, and bodywork services for all types of trucks and trailers. The team of experienced mechanics ensures high-quality implementation of all repairs, inspections, diagnostics, and vehicle maintenance.

The paint shop located here is adapted for painting long vehicles, with the capability to handle elements up to 40 meters long. This modern auto port also offers a modern car wash capable of thoroughly cleaning both the exterior and interior parts of vehicles.

A home on the road comes with responsibilities

Hegelmann Hub has spacious, monitored, and guarded parking lots that can accommodate 850 trucks. Over 750 sleeping places are waiting for drivers at the Training and Accommodation Centre, along with access to kitchens, professional gyms, and luggage storage.

« We are prepared and open to receive all types of tractors and trailers. What was crucial in the design of the complex is that during equipment servicing, the driver can properly rest and rejuvenate before continuing his/her journey. Such an approach, focusing on proper service for our clients and the strategic location near the Polish-German border, encourages more and more companies and drivers to take a break at our base, » explains Adrian Koziorowski, Head of Branch, HT Trucks & Parts, managing the Hegelmann Hub complex.

Recently, Hegelmann joined the « Direction: Respect » project by the Truckers Life Foundation, aimed at improving working conditions for drivers. Besides verifying the quality of loading sites, it is also an educational platform for the entire TSL sector. It supports a culture of mutual respect and understanding among all participants in the supply chain. Hegelmann Hub has been marked as a truck driver-friendly location.

Hegelmann Group is one of the most dynamically developing transport company in Europe

25 years ago, three brothers decided to set up a transport company, starting their business with two used tractor units. Today, Hegelmann Group is one of the most dynamically developing transport groups in Europe. Hegelmann Poland companies have been operating in Poland for 13 years.

Due to its location, our country has always played an important role in international trade and transport. It is no different in the context of the importance of Polish companies for the development of the entire Hegelmann Group. The scale of operations is evidenced by the fact that in Poland, over 1,000 office and service employees are employed to service the operations of the companies to deliver clients’ loads using their own 2100 trucks and over 1,500 semi-trailers.

Such a large team is needed to meet the requirements of our clients from various industries: automotive, food, chemical, FMCG, industrial production and factories, e-commerce, trade, electronics and pharmacy. These are only examples of the largest business groups with which Hegelmann cooperates throughout the European Union.

“- Each past year has presented us with difficult challenges. 2023 promises to be no different. However, I believe that thanks to our great team, business environment, our partners and business strategy, we are able to meet them. This year our group celebrates 25 years of existence, which coincides with the opening of one of our key investments in Poland – Hegelmann Hub in Żarska Wieś. I am glad that such a great jubilee will be marked in history by the opening of our modern transport base” – says Fedir Yurkevych, president of Hegelmann Poland.

An extensive base is being built in Żarska Wieś near Zgorzelec, which will provide services of a high standard, ensuring safe driving and comfortable rest for drivers. The Hegelmann Hub complex consists of office space, a hotel offering accommodation adapted to the needs of drivers, a workshop and vehicle diagnostic station, a paint shop, a car wash adapted to the dimensions of trucks and a warehouse for spare parts and tires.

Although finishing works are still underway in part of the facility, the company belonging to the group, HT Trucks & Parts, operating in this area, has opened its doors to Hegelmann trucks and other companies, not only cooperating with the company on a daily basis. All types of vehicles are serviced here, from passenger cars, through delivery vans to full service of trucks.

An equally important aspect as business growth is its quality expressed in activities related to sustainable development. Hegelmann Poland has 160 trucks powered by LNG and CNG in its fleet. Intermodal services are also being developed that reduce the carbon footprint, but at the same time are an interesting alternative for customers. In the case of taking care of the environment, it is also important that the Hegelmann Poland fleet operates tractors with an average age of 2-3 years, which is not without significance in the context of striving to reduce environmental pollution.

Hegelmann Group partners with carbon accounting specialists Emitwise to accelerate carbon neutral transition

The multinational heavy asset carrier Hegelmann is working with Emitwise, the carbon accounting platform, to increase the accuracy of their emission data to enable carbon reduction.

Founded in 1998, the Hegelmann Group have offered a wide range of transport and logistics services for nearly 25 years, serving customers from practically every industry,engineering and manufacturing, pharma and healthcare, consumer and fresh food ,electronics and high value.

In response, Hegelmann launched its Mission Green programme in 2021 to become carbon neutral by 2045. So far, its focus has been switching to renewable energy and transitioning its large fleet to greener options. 

Andreas Schmidt, CEO of Hegelmann Express GmbH, states, “Effective emissions monitoring in the transportation logistics industry not only increases accountability and transparency, but also allows businesses to identify areas for improvement and implement carbon-cutting strategies. The industry can work toward a more sustainable future and play an important role in mitigating the effects of climate change by tracking and adjusting emissions on a regular basis. It’s also phenomenal to be on this journey with Emitwise. »    

However, to accelerate their transition, Hegelmann needs accurate and transparent data to drive business decisions. Emitwise’s carbon accounting platform is renowned for its granular approach to calculating emissions across all three scopes. This level of accuracy substantiates the steps Hegelmann will take to achieve its low-carbon targets. 

« It’s fantastic to work with companies that understand the importance of digitalizing their carbon strategies, » states Mauro Cozzi, CEO and Co-founder of Emitwise. « Hegelmann has ambitious reduction targets, and they can only achieve the accuracy needed to make decisions and confidently take action through technology. Logistics sit at the heart of every global supply chain, and we’re thrilled that lowering Hegelmann’s emissions will significantly reduce those of their customers too.

TuSimple Partners with Global Logistics Leader, Hegelmann Group

SAN DIEGO, July 19, 2022 – TuSimple (Nasdaq: TSP), a global autonomous driving technology company, has announced its partnership with Hegelmann Group, a major European transport and logistics provider, that operates a fleet of over 5,000 vehicles, including an initial reservation of purpose-built SAE Level 4 (L4) Autonomous International® Trucks for operation in North America.  The trucks will be equipped with TuSimple’s advanced autonomous driving system and will be based on a world-class global vehicle platform developed by Navistar.

Hegelmann’s partnership with TuSimple signals the symbiotic path of both partners to offer innovative solutions that address the ongoing driver shortage while lowering greenhouse gas emissions and improving vehicle and environmental safety. Hegelmann’s reservation of factory-production units with TuSimple technology is a primary action in developing a new state-of-the-art logistics network in North America called the TuSimple Autonomous Freight Network (AFN). Early studies show that autonomous trucks in this type of network have the potential to reduce fuel consumption for middle mile transportation.

« TuSimple’s innovations will elevate our ability to compete and prosper in the North American market and are analogous to our stated objective to become a global logistics technology adopter, » said Andrew Jasinskas, Business Development Project Manager – Hegelmann USA. « Undoubtedly autonomous trucks with TuSimple technology are the future of transportation, and Hegelmann’s strategy is to likewise be a standard bearer for innovations that push safety and efficiency to the next era of logistics excellence. »

« We are pleased to add Hegelmann to our rapidly growing fleet partners who wish to adopt, integrate, and scale SAE L4 truck operation in the United States, » said Lee White, Vice President of Strategy. « Hegelmann chose TuSimple as their autonomous vehicle technology partner due to TuSimple’s leadership in the rapidly approaching full-commercialization of autonomous vehicles. »

TuSimple demonstrated its leadership with the industry’s first Driver Out (no human intervention or operator) runs in 2021 which the company plans to continue through 2022 as it prepares for full commercialization. TuSimple’s Driver Out pilot program is the product of a year and a half of work to co-develop a L4 autonomous Class 8 vehicle with Navistar to demonstrate the level of redundancy, reliability, consistency, and safety necessary to remove the driver from the truck.

By the end of 2023, TuSimple plans to carry paid freight operations in high-density freight lanes in the southern US. Driver-out runs have been critical in scaling autonomous trucking operations on the TuSimple Autonomous Freight Network.

Le 14 juillet 2021, la première pierre a été posée dans la zone du chantier : Siegfried Hegelmann et Anton Hegelmann, associés du groupe Hegelmann, étaient parmi les personnes présentes sur le site. (Photo : Hegelmann)
  • Un nouveau hub est construit près de la frontière dans le sud-ouest du pays
  • L’entreprise de logistique répond aux exigences des paquets de mobilité
  • Zone de service complète pour les véhicules et les conducteurs
Bruchsal/Żarska Wieś (Pologne), 16 juillet 2021 – Le groupe Hegelmann construit le premier hub pour chauffeurs routiers en Pologne. Le projet, unique dans le pays, est construit à Żarska Wieś, dans le sud-ouest de la Pologne, près de la frontière allemande, sur une surface d’un peu moins de douze hectares. Outre des options de service complètes pour les transitaires et les véhicules, le centre d’opérations offre également son propre hôtel et de vastes possibilités de stationnement. C’est aussi la réponse de l’entreprise internationale de transport et de logistique aux exigences accrues résultant des nouvelles réglementations européennes et du paquet mobilité. Jusqu’à présent, l’investissement s’est élevé à environ 22 millions d’euros. L’ouverture du complexe, qui sera successivement agrandi, est prévue pour la mi-2022. Avec le hub, nous construisons un complexe de services optimal adapté aux besoins de nos conducteurs et de nos employés. En outre, nous l’utilisons pour aider les petites entreprises de transport à répondre aux exigences du paquet mobilité », déclare Siegfried Hegelmann, actionnaire du groupe Hegelmann. Hegelmann est la première entreprise du secteur du transport et de la logistique à mettre en place un centre opérationnel intégré en Pologne. Le site est divisé en plusieurs zones : La zone de service pour les camions, d’environ 7 000 mètres carrés, comprend un atelier, une installation de diagnostic, un atelier de peinture et un lavage de camions. S’y ajoute un entrepôt de pièces détachées et de pneus de près de 6 000 mètres carrés. La gamme complète de services nous permet d’optimiser les temps de réparation et de garantir l’efficacité des opérations », explique Hegelmann. À l’avenir, un autre complexe logistique séparé et un centre de stockage seront construits ici. En plus des bureaux de l’entreprise, une soixantaine de bureaux supplémentaires sont disponibles pour les entreprises externes sur l’immense site. Un hôtel de plus de 750 lits fait également partie de la base élargie. Les chauffeurs qui reviennent des routes européennes peuvent y passer leur temps de repos obligatoire. Un autre avantage de la plate-forme Hegelmann est l’espace commercial séparé et de haute qualité réservé aux partenaires commerciaux, aux transitaires et aux autres entreprises de transport. Les vastes aires de stationnement autour des bureaux, de l’hôtel, des zones de service et des entrepôts offrent également de la place pour 220 camions et 450 voitures. Le Hub Hegelmann en Pologne est une base de transport conçue pour un fonctionnement optimal à bien des égards », déclare Hegelmann. L’ouverture du Hegelmann Hub Poland à la mi-2022 aura également un impact positif sur la région. Le centre d’exploitation lui-même devrait employer environ 200 personnes. D’autres emplois seront créés par nos partenaires commerciaux et d’autres entreprises », précise M. Hegelmann.

Le groupe Hegelmann s'étend aux États-Unis

L’entreprise internationale de transport et de logistique lance ses activités en Amérique du Nord sous le nom de Hegelmann USA. Le siège de Chicago commencera à fournir des services de transport et de logistique au début du mois de janvier de l’année prochaine. Un investissement d’environ dix millions d’euros dans la croissance de la nouvelle filiale américaine est prévu pour les trois premières années. Hegelmann prévoit d’ouvrir d’autres marchés d’Amérique du Nord et d’Amérique centrale à l’avenir. La première cible sera le Canada. La croissance internationale doit être poursuivie. La première année, au moins 15 nouveaux emplois seront créés aux États-Unis. La flotte sera initialement composée de dix camions standard. Plus tard, la flotte sera complétée par des camions fonctionnant au GNL ou à l’électricité. Nous avions déjà envisagé de nous implanter aux États-Unis à la fin de 2019. Nous voulons devenir une organisation mondiale qui offre ses services sur les continents européen, nord-américain et asiatique. Nous pensons qu’en travaillant dur et honnêtement, nous pouvons devenir un acteur prospère, ambitieux et en croissance constante sur les marchés américain et nord-américain’, explique Andrew Jasinskas, responsable du développement commercial chez Hegelmann Group, qui est chargé de l’expansion américaine. Hegelmann a déjà des liens avec le marché américain. Nous offrons des services logistiques à nos partenaires américains en Europe et sommes donc déjà bien connectés », explique Jasinskas. Hegelmann prévoit d’investir environ deux millions d’euros dans la croissance stratégique et les opérations au cours de la première année d’expansion. Huit autres millions d’euros suivront au cours des deuxième et troisième années. Il est prévu, entre autres, d’acheter des remorques « dry van », des remorques thermiques, des plates-formes, des silos et des remorques porte-voitures. Nous voulons offrir très rapidement la même gamme de services aux États-Unis qu’en Europe. Nous sommes une entreprise mondiale et puissante », conclut M. Jasinskas.

Le groupe Hegelmann a acquis des camions fonctionnant au GNL

Le groupe Hegelmann a acquis cinq camions fonctionnant au GNL (gaz naturel liquéfié). Ces camions permettront non seulement de réduire la pollution, mais aussi de contribuer à l’efficacité des activités de l’entreprise. D’ici 2025, ils devraient représenter au moins 20 % de la flotte totale de véhicules de l’entreprise, qui compte actuellement environ 4 000 camions.

Dans le cadre de son évolution vers l’écologie, l’entreprise cherche également à attirer l’attention sur la question des forêts en Europe en raison de la sécheresse et du changement climatique, et prévoit de planter 7 000 arbres en Europe – comme un certain nombre d’employés du groupe Hegelmann.
