The new issue of Line Pipe Global focuses on transport, logistics and mobility.
Under the motto "We make a difference", we don‘t want to look at the well-known aspects of applications in the classic line pipe sector, but rather present exciting projects in which our products have been used. From the leading role in a bridge construction project to a new bus station as part of a sustainable transport concept, and from there to innovative waste disposal.
In addition, we look to the future and give you an outline of the application area of transport and hydrogen storage.
"We make a difference" also stands for the logistics services we provide to our customers and shows how we ourselves depend on the transport of our goods.
For example, you can find out on which route our pipes reach the USA. A figure that may surprise many of you in this context: For the transport of our HFI-welded pipes, we continuously have 90 special wagons of Deutsche Bahn in service. Not only a reliable, but also a very sustainable transport alternative, as has been recently confirmed by DB Cargo. In 2018, rail transports have enabled us to reduce our CO2 emissions by 2,080 tons to 825 tons compared to road transport by truck.* Here, too, we make a difference!
On the following pages of this issue you can read about the opportunities Mannesmann Line Pipe products open up for our customers in the fields of transport, logistics and mobility, both now and in the future.
I wish you a stimulating and enjoyable read!
