GOgreen – The sustainable vehicle fleet of the Sieber Group

The Sieber Group continues to set standards in sustainable logistics. As part of our GoGreen initiative, we have significantly expanded our electric vehicle fleet. With a lived sustainability strategy, we take responsibility for our environment and actively engage with a variety of measures.

Advances in electromobility

More than 25 fossil-free vehicles are now available to our customers for various transport orders. Thanks to the different structures, these electric vehicles are ideally suited for a variety of environmentally friendly and CO2-emission-free transport tasks.

Further investments in the existing charging infrastructure are planned for the future – where possible, also in combination with photovoltaics and energy storage. Our plans are to gradually expand the environmentally friendly fleet. Sustainability is a common goal. Green logistics will only be possible if everyone pulls together! We are particularly pleased that our commitment was highlighted in the current issue of Blick Green Circle.

A milestone for the Sieber Group, LogisticAigle, Danone Suisse and evian!

Together with our partners LogisticAigle, Danone Suisse and evian, we have reached a milestone: the successful commissioning of the photovoltaic systems on the roof of the LogisticAigle building in Aigle, which is leased by the Sieber Group.

The new photovoltaic systems, consisting of 2,246 solar modules on an area of 4,357 m², will generate around 992,160 kWh per year. This amount of energy corresponds to the annual consumption of around 400 households. This step is crucial for our energy transition as it reduces our dependence on traditional energy sources, minimizes our carbon footprint and ensures stable energy costs.

Sustainability and energy efficiency: Sieber now obtains 50% of its electricity from renewable solar energy, thus meeting high sustainability standards that inspire our customers and improve our environmental footprint.

Partnership successes: As a distributor for Danone Switzerland and the popular evian brand throughout Switzerland, we are making significant progress through sustainable developments from which both brands benefit directly.

Innovative business model: LogisticAigle is increasing the value of its building through Romande Energie’s innovative “Solar Energy Contracting” business model, which is not only environmentally but also economically advantageous.

Sieber is thus sending out a strong signal for sustainable business practices. This is an important step for us and our partners on the way to more environmentally friendly and energy-efficient operations.

Sieber-Stauindex

The flourishing economy and population growth are leading to a steady increase in traffic congestion on the Swiss road network. This is also reflected in the congestion statistics from FEDRO (Federal Roads Office). The challenging traffic load has a direct impact on the Sieber truck fleet, for example:

  • Significant loss of productivity due to vehicles stuck in traffic jams
  • Factoring in larger time margins for fixed delivery deadlines
  • Higher fuel consumption due to increased stop-and-go traffic

For these reasons, the Sieber Group charges an industry-standard congestion surcharge for the additional costs incurred. The congestion hours are calculated by Viasuisse AG on behalf of the Federal Roads Office FEDRO and published annually in the annual report “Traffic development and availability of the motorways”. Viasuisse now provides the congestion hours on a monthly basis. For this reason, the Sieber Group will now also update and calculate the congestion surcharge once a month.

Calculation of the congestion index

  • The basis for the calculation is the sum of the congestion hours of the last 12 months (rolling calculation)
  • The congestion surcharge is adjusted and published on a monthly basis
  • The congestion zone lower limit of 0% is not undercut

You can find the Sieber congestion index via the following link: Congestion Index
