As a modern provider of transport and logistics, we take responsibility for protecting the environment and ensuring a sustainable consumption of resources. In doing so, we primarily focus on reducing CO2 emissions. Since 1992, we have reduced the emissions of pollutants by 95% despite our increased mileage.

Road Train

An efficient way of reducing the transport

ELFLEIN’s fleet includes 24 Road Trains. This significantly reduces the number of journeys,
the mileage and CO2 emissions.

2-axle megatrailer (24t effective weight)

Fuel saving

24 t of effective weight distributed over only two axles. Improved automotive technology significantly reduces fuel consumption.

Efficiency Truck

Aerodynamic efficiency focusing on effective weight

Reduced number of axles, fitting aerodynamic sides – ELFLEIN has three Efficiency Trucks with 3 to 5% higher efficiency compared to standard trailers.

Driver training

An important factor for sustainable fleet management

Economical driving methods aimed at reducing harmful emissions are an integral part of our driver training programme.

Quality assurance

Elflein adapts to the changing conditions on the market and the growing complexity of products and services through optimized processes and a continuous improvement of quality. We meet the requirements set out in the internationally accepted quality standard DIN EN ISO 9001: 2015 and the standard for environmental management DIN EN ISO 14001: 2015. Our goal is to always ensure our customer processes through services meeting the highest international standards.


Continuous improvement of processes, technical renewal of the fleet and processes based on information technologies are the core of our success on the market, which would not have been possible without the passion and commitment of our staff. Repeated prestigious awards assure us that we should continue to follow the path we have chosen.
