Our special responsibility
With our history as a family company, we feel a special responsibility for the future and the next generation. What does this mean in concrete terms?
Healthy, safe and enjoyable work
Our employees are the backbone of our company. They work hard, and with passion for the job. That's why we make it our business to ensure that they enjoy their work, and that it's healthy and safe. Our goal is for them to remain fit and healthy for work in the long term. How do we ensure this?
Nobody knows this better than our employees themselves. That's why AB Texel Group places great value on employee participation and conducting an open dialogue with trade unions and the Works Council.
With so much heavy and moving equipment, minimising workplace risks is our priority. That's why we work with the OHSAS 18001 system.
Our green dot: care for the environment
Unfortunately transport has an environmental impact, but we are tackling this. That's why you'll see a green dot in our logo. The dot symbolises our dedication to sustainability. We show this in concrete terms by using cleaner fuels and improving the infrastructure. This reduces AB Texel Group's CO2 footprint. A few examples:
- Part of our vehicle fleet already runs on LNG, and we're rolling this out further.
- With the help of our transportation management system (TMS), our planners maximise
utilisation of our vehicle fleet and reduce the number of empty kilometres.
- Together with our suppliers, we design lighter trailers to transport more cargo at
lower costs and with lower CO2 emissions per transported tonne.
Our ISO14001 guarantees all environmental regulations.
You can achieve more together than you can alone. That's why we invest a lot of time in long-term partnerships with our supply chain partners, in various fields including sustainable entrepreneurship.
A good neighbour is worth more than a distant friend
Via Stichting A-wareness, AB Texel Group is closely involved in the communities where our branches are based.
