Sustainable transport

In addition to alternative fuels, we at De Rijke also think of other ways to achieve sustainable transport. Here we mainly look at the use of alternative modalities. Looking at other modalities or transport solutions will also ensure CO2 reductions. For example, consider using the various European/worldwide railways and inland shipping options.

We are happy to look at improving your current package in a sustainable way and are happy to discuss the options with you. We are able to create different scenarios for you with the associated CO2 calculation. Curious about what we can do for you in this sector? Please contact us or request a quote.

Intermodal Transport

Intermodal transportation is a transportation concept in which goods are moved using multiple different modes of transportation, such as trucks, trains, ships, and aircraft, where the cargo can be transferred from one mode to another during transportation without being unloaded. The aim is to improve the efficiency, cost-effectiveness and sustainability of transport by leveraging the strengths of each transport mode while minimizing the disadvantages. Furthermore, there are several advantages, such as:

  • More efficient logistics
  • Cost savings
  • Environmentally friendly character


Barge, also known as inland waterway transport, is a mode of transport that involves the transportation of goods over inland waterways, such as rivers, canals, lakes and coastal waters, rather than the open sea. Barges vary in size and type, from small boats used in inland waterways and canals to larger ships and barges used to transport goods over longer distances. Furthermore, there are several advantages, such as:


  • Capacity to transport large quantities
  • Efficient transport with a relatively low environmental impact
  • Cost saving

CO2 calculations

In addition to calculating our own CO2 emissions, we can also make other calculations and scenario planning for you as a customer. We can offer you insight into the CO2 emissions you have through transport at De Rijke.

There are various KPIs that can be set jointly to reduce the impact on the environment, so we can take this into account when we take care of your transport completely. Consider sustainable transport and alternative modalities. In advance, we can make various scenario plans to meet all your sustainability wishes!
