Sustainable Transport

Electrifying the powertrains of industrial vehicles, transportation and marine

Discover more
The transportation of people, goods and raw materials accounts for over 25% of the world’s total energy consumption and almost 30% of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions worldwide. While the emissions from vehicles like passenger cars are often the first consideration given their high volume, non-rail transportation of either people or goods like busses, ferries and industrial vehicles also have a significant impact.

Given the urgency to reduce the impact on our planet, in addition to ongoing price and supply volatility of fuel, it is critically important for companies to transition to a sustainable transport approach to reduce both their emissions and energy consumption.

The journey towards electrifying the powertrains of your industrial vehicles, transportation or marine vessels can be made easier and more efficient by using the broad ABB offering in sustainable transport solutions. Built on more than 130 years of experience with a reputation for quality, reliability and service makes ABB the best choice as full-range partner for your future in electrification.

How we help the material handling industry

Material handling vehicles like forklifts, reach stackers, and straddle carriers are essential in business to keep the flow of goods moving at ports and airports around the world. However, they can also be a significant source of carbon emissions, but ABB solutions can support the transition to electrification.
