To transport export containers, Grolsch makes considerable use of inland navigation. At Combi Terminal Twente in Hengelo, the empty containers arrive by means of the Twentekanaal and are sent out again loaded. In this way, we save considerably on the CO2 emissions. By means of inland navigation with a 40-45 ft. sea container, we save 71.2% CO2 as compared to road transport.

Better Use deal
Together with other large Twente companies, Grolsch signed the Better Use of Twente Canals deal (‘Beter Benutten Twente Kanalen’). The goal is to transport more freight by water. If all goes well, this will mean 900 fewer lorries on the road every day by 2020.
