Long-term partnership: MediaMarktSaturn and LKW WALTER shift shipments to rail

LKW WALTER is pleased to announce a new partnership with IMTRON, a MediaMarktSaturn Group company. To date, the German company has organized the transport of its private label items from Germany to northern and southern Italy by road and has recently been looking for sustainable alternatives. Due to the higher supply chain stability over the Brenner Pass and the reduction of CO₂, LKW WALTER convinced with combined transport. The result: all transports of this important route are shifted to rail. The special feature is that the craneable trailers are lifted onto the train at the terminal and transported to Italy without any transshipment. In Italy they go back on the road for the last mile.

Transport as a lever for company-wide CO₂ reduction

Most recently, CECONOMY AG, the parent company of MediaMarktSaturn, extended its participation in the European Commission's "Sustainable Consumption Pledge" and further specified its climate and environmental goals more concretely. This is a voluntary initiative launched as part of the European Climate Pact. Reducing the ecological footprint in its logistics is therefore one of the company's central goals. "We also want to make an important contribution to further reducing CO₂ emissions with our own brands. The partnership with LKW WALTER is the next logical step for us to make the supply chain to the customer even more sustainable", explains Karsten Sommer, Managing Director of IMTRON GmbH.

919 kg CO₂ saved per transport

LKW Walter Combined Transport

With LKW WALTER, MediaMarktSaturn has opted for over 40 years of experience in combined transport. This is considered an up-and-coming solution for sustainable transports on the long haul - even though it has been around for so long. The figures in particular prove this: On the route driven by MediaMarktSaturn almost a whole ton of CO₂ emissions (exactly 919 kg) are saved per transport and trailer.

Because climate protection is not a one-off matter but requires long-term solutions, both companies attach great importance to the long-term nature of this partnership.
