Dailycool - part of the Schot Group - specialises in refrigerated transport and logistics services for meat, fruit and vegetables. Dailycool provides around 350 weekly transports of freshly cut vegetables, fresh pizzas and salads to the various distribution centres of Albert Heijn for client Vezet. In mid-2020, in consultation with this important client, the family business decided to further shape its sustainability ambitions by switching to Neste MY Renewable Diesel for the entire fleet and a number of cooling engines.
Dailycool achieves a reduction with Neste MY of 3.5 million kg of CO2e emissions per year!
In close consultation with our customer Vezet, we have opted for a sustainable fuel with which we can immediately achieve substantial sustainability gains. Neste MY was chosen as a directly applicable replacement for regular fossil diesel. This provides us with a gigantic saving in emissions of greenhouse gases and particulate matter. We also looked at alternatives such as electricity, biodiesel and biogas, but all these other alternatives were not economically feasible, as they require modifications to cars and/or infrastructure
– Director Rinus Peekstok about the sustainable choice for Neste MY
How did the switch itself go?
Problem-free. In consultation with our distributor GP Groot, we set a date and on that specific day we switched completely from regular fossil diesel to fossil-free Neste MY. Without any problems. Not for our drivers, not for our cars and not for all cooling engines.
How are the experiences with Neste MY so far?
Very positive. Just like our clients, our drivers are delighted that they can contribute to a more sustainable society. What I get in return in concrete terms: Neste MY is a clean, odourless fuel of high quality, the engines are quieter and more economical. The fuel also runs perfectly; we expect engine oil and filters to last longer, so less maintenance is also required.
What is the impact of the choice for Neste MY for Dailycool's image and differentation?
We have existing customers who think it's very important that we transport sustainably. And for potential new customers it's good to distinguish ourselves clearly from other transport companies - and we see that this is catching on in the market
“We changed our entire fleet fossil-free right away, without additional investment.”
