Bolloré Logistics Singapore launches biodiesel haulage service with L'Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific

Puteaux. 05 November 2021

Bolloré Logistics Singapore and L'Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific have jointly a launched a biofuel solution for local trucking services that will be used for delivery of L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific’s beauty products across the country. This development further marks a new stage in the collaboration between the two companies and is driven by their respective sustainability commitments.

The new transportation solution uses B20 biodiesel and was co-designed with Richland Logistics – an industry leader with a dedicated fleet and commitment to developing green solutions. It was created from a mixture of used cooking oil and regular diesel. Each year, a potential 20,0001 tonnes of waste cooking oil is generated and disposed of in Singapore. Repurposing this waste cooking oil would be more resource-efficient and would contribute to a circular economy. 

The roll-out of this service follows the 2019 launch in Singapore of a fleet of electric vehicles dedicated to last-mile delivery. These initiatives are part of Bolloré Logistics’ Powering Sustainable Logistics programme which aims to reduce its transport services' scope 3 CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030 (based on 2019 emissions).
