Emons – in brief, October 2010

Emons Spedition Leipzig receives status of regulated agent
The term “regulated agent” refers to a status that air-cargo businesses, forwarding companies, etc, can apply for from Germany’s Federal Aviation Administration to obtain simpler cargo handling at airports. An EU ordinance and national air-security legislation requires airlines to subject their cargo to comprehensive security measures before aircraft are loaded. These can be skipped if a company has special status as regulated agent for cargo handling at airports.

Environment: Emons Transporte switches truck fleet to more environmentally-friendly vehicles
Emons Spedition’s transport company is switching its vehicle fleet from the EURO-4 standard to the EURO-5 standard. In 2010, the EURO-5 trucks, which emit less pollutant amounts than EURO-4 trucks, now make up 95% of the vehicle fleet. For 2011, planning calls for the conversion of up to 30% of the vehicle fleet to a new, lower-emission EEV standard (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicles). With this move, Emons is also demonstrating its commitment to environmentally-friendly transport services, in addition to its professional cost management.

Emons transports donated animal feed to “Tiere in Not Odenwald e.V.” free of charge
At the start of September, Emons Spediton Darmstadt/Weiterstadt transported nearly two tons (approx. six pallets) of animal feed donated by “004 Beratungs- und Dienstleistungs GmbH” in Aschaffenburg free of charge to the charity “Tiere in Not Odenwald e.V.” (Animals in distress) to Reichelsheim. Further information about “Tiere in Not Odenwald e.V.” can be found on its Website at: http://www.tiere-in-not-odenwald.de.

Emons Spedition Bayreuth/Himmelkron increases training rate
In September, 12 new apprentices started their careers at Emons Bayreuth/Himmelkron. With 28 apprentices now learning the ropes in four professional fields, the Bayreuth-based Emons branch establishment is increasing its training rate by multiples. The Bayreuth head of training, Kristina Jäger, explains Emons’ commitment to junior staff: “We are preparing our apprentices so well by our various measures, including in-house training, that all of them have a good chance of being taken over after their training. This also has the advantage, for example, that longer induction times compared with new non-Emons staff can be almost entirely dispensed with.”

Emons’ sporting side
Six Bremen Emons staffers joined the scheme “Cycling to work – An initiative mounted by ADFC and AOK”. The task set was to cycle to work (or also to a train station, etc) on at least 20 days between 1 June and 31 August. Altogether, the Emons staffers cycled 2,524 km.

Thirty-three staff members of Emons Spedition took part in this year’s HRS BusinessRun Cologne 2010 on 26.08.2010. Prior to Cologne’s biggest corporate run, the Emons runners were prepared by a specially hired running coach who organized a runners’ meeting every two weeks. In all, over 6,200 bold company contestants tackled the 5-km round in Cologne’s urban forest along the lines of: “Laufe, fiere, danze!” (Run, party, dance).
