Low rolling resistance – less CO2
Environmentally friendly tires have a low rolling resistance, which means that the car rolls significantly longer than ordinary tires when the accelerator is released, and at the same time, the truck rolls more easily in direct propulsion. This has the effect that the truck generally uses less force to keep going and is thereby reducing fuel consumption and hence carbon dioxide emissions. Of course, all tires have a certain service life, AND it is therefore also crucial that the tires are handled in an environmentally friendly manner when they are worn out.
Give the tires more life
When our eco-friendly tires are worn out, they are not just thrown out as you normally do. We send the tires back to the manufacturer, who gives the tires new life. New life through the recycling of vital and long-lasting materials. In other words, waste is reduced, as recyclable raw materials are recycled without compromising on safety and operational stability – this gives the tires more life.
As the transport industry is heavy in terms of CO2, we have a shared responsibility to do what we can to contribute to a more sustainable future. At the same time, we have a responsibility to transport our customers’ goods safely and efficiently from a to b, which is why we at H. Daugaard always do our utmost to do this in the most environmentally friendly way.
That is why we have also installed Eco-Driving in all our trucks – you can read more about this here
