Press release from: Cronus Logistics

European regulators have been alarmed by the disproportionate share of CO2 trucks generate despite the fact they make up only 5% of the total traffic on European roads. CO2 emissions have continued to rise since the 1990s due to increasing road freight traffic and this issue is currently being discussed by EU leaders, who are focusing on measuring and reporting fuel consumption as a first step to cap CO2 emissions from heavy-duty vehicles, see:

Cronus Logistics, one of the most innovative supply chain companies on the Irish-UK gateway understands the importance of reducing the amount of time spent travelling on UK and Irish roads and they are ahead of the curve in establishing their linehaul services.

Cronus Logistics has created an innovative service built on realising the importance of reducing road miles, driver hours, costs and cutting CO2 emissions. Pressure to lower emissions is mounting on manufacturers. There is currently no official method to measuring CO2 emissions from heavy-duty vehicles. As a step towards enforcing regulations the European Commission is introducing a Vehicle Energy Consumption Calculation Tool (VECTO) - a computer simulation measurement system that is expected to become mandatory as of this summer.

This is meant to be the first step in regulating emissions, however there are already concerns that VECTO won’t be effective due to the fact that there are so many different trucks on the market, making the industry too complex to be measured in this way. Rather than enforcing legislation that may not work in practice, by actually reducing the amount of time travelling on roads Cronus Logistics has tackled the problem head on.

Cronus Logistics is the only Irish Sea logistics company offering a comprehensive door-to-door service for dry freight, with full control of every element of the supply chain. This culminates in a reliable, competitive and green route to market.

Cronus has recently increased their services based on this ethos utilising two dedicated gateways - Bristol to Warrenpoint and Cardiff to Dublin. By linking these four ports they can strengthen the offerings to core manufacturing sectors to offer reduced road miles, lower CO2 emissions and tailored deliveries to customer requirements, alongside maintaining an industry standard 48 hour service.

If you want a service that demonstrates green credentials and saves on costs, Cronus is the logistics solution that reduces road miles, cuts CO2 emissions and contributes to a stronger financial bottom line.

Cronus Logistics is a dedicated logistics specialist offering door to door services on the UK – Ireland gateway. The sustainable cost-effective multimodal solution breaks the mould of traditional LO/LO shipping to deliver a unique logistics alternative for the UK - Irish markets. Cronus Logistics is the Irish Sea Gateway door-to-door logistics service operating through the ports of Bristol, Warrenpoint, Cardiff and Dublin. Running its own vessels, Cronus Logistics is a reliable Full Load supply chain partner with regular departures in each direction making supply chains greener by reducing road miles and breaking the mould of the traditional container shipping lines.

Their 4000t vessels are capable of taking up to 80 forty-five foot curtain-sided or box containers, alongside 20ft and 40ft boxes and refrigerated containers. The ships can also easily accommodate out of gauge cargo.

Bristol is only 90 miles from Birmingham, around 100 miles from London and with reducing road mileage a big factor for both exporters and importers, cutting their carbon footprint on an operationally effective yet more cost-efficient service starts to make a lot of logistical and financial sense.
One of the big attractions of the port at Warrenpoint is its location, situated midway between Dublin and Belfast. It has excellent road links to the major population centres of Ireland and with an ever improving roads network, delivery times to all destinations are constantly being reduced.
