As part of its commitment to environmental protection and sustainability, the long-standing logistics partner of Deutsche Messe AG "Kühne+Nagel" is converting its entire forklift truck fleet at its German exhibition centers in Hamburg, Hanover, Düsseldorf, Munich and Nuremberg.

HVO is made from renewable raw materials and offers a clean and sustainable alternative to conventional fuels. With the introduction of this environmentally friendly fuel, Kuehne+Nagel is making an important contribution to reducing the ecological footprint of the entire logistics chain at the exhibition center in Hanover.

"We are very pleased that Kuehne+Nagel, as our long-standing logistics partner, is also converting its forklift fleet to run on hydrogenated vegetable oil at the Hanover exhibition center. This is another important step on our path toCO2 neutrality and shows us that our service providers and partners have recognized the importance of sustainability and are taking this path with us," says Andrea Aulkemeyer, Chief Financial Officer of Deutsche Messe AG.

Denis Gerlach, National Road Logistics Expo & Events Manager Germany, commented: "Kuehne + Nagel's use of HVO100 (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) on German exhibition grounds underlines its commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. By integrating this renewable fuel into its operations, Kuehne + Nagel is not only reducing carbon emissions but also setting a commendable example for the logistics industry. This initiative is in line with Germany's drive for clean energy solutions and demonstrates Kuehne + Nagel's proactive approach to reducing its environmental footprint in connection with major trade fairs and events. This is an important part of our Roadmap 2026, which we will continue to implement consistently."
