With the appointment of the new Transport Minister Volker Wissing, FDP, the Federal Government is steering a clear course towards achieving climate neutrality. Wissing emphasised in the ZDF Morgenmagazin TV show that the transport sector has to make a major contribution to climate neutrality. As a pioneer and innovation driver for e-mobility in passenger, transport and freight transport, Quantron AG provides the emission-free trucks, buses and vans required for this.
In order to decarbonise freight transport as quickly as possible, Quantron AG is converting existing and used vehicles from diesel technology to emission-free electric drives. This gives them a second, now environmentally-friendly service life, so to speak, and thus makes a fundamental contribution to climate protection and resource management in the transport sector.
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Raimund Klinkner, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the German Transport Forum (DVF), acknowledged this commitment at a joint press conference at the end of last year. “Quantron AG’s repowering approach of converting diesel-powered commercial vehicles to emission-free drive technologies allows truck and bus transportation to be switched over to climate-neutral drives more quickly”. “Time is an essential factor for the climate balance,” explains Klinkner, which is why, in view of the ambitious climate targets of the new federal government, “the focus must not only be placed on new vehicles but also on existing fleets.” For the Chairman of the Executive Committee of the German Transport Forum “a ‘refit’ of existing vehicle fleets is a very sensible measure.”
The fact that QUANTRON is on the right track is shown by the company’s recent award of the “European Transport Prize for Sustainability 2022”.
QUANTRON has been a member of the German Transport Forum (DVF) since January 2022.
