Success Story

Sustainable logistics concept



Reading Time: 2 minutes

Ankerbrot planned to build a new production plant from which its 100 bakery shops across Vienna were to be supplied, with environmental and social sustainability in mind. Thus, a sustainable logistics concept should explore the technological, economic, and environmental feasibility with battery-electric trucks to avoid CO2 emissions.

Our solution

denkstatt – together with our partner Gregori Consulting – developed a sustainable logistics concept, addressing:


  • Regulatory environment and other market drivers 
  • Sustainability demands of clients and other stakeholders 
  • Analysis of current data (volumes, trips) and future demand/changes in product portfolio 
  • Technological feasibility of battery-electric trucks with cooling, including infrastructure requirements 
  • The potential of innovative, shared approaches for the fleet 
  • Route simulation taking into account payload, volume, and time constraints 
  • Calculation of CO2 emissions reduction 
  • Business case calculations, including subsidies and carbon pricing 

The results could then be integrated into the further planning processes of the new plant.

Client benefit

Sustainable logistics concept provided clear results regarding the feasibility and business case for delivering from the new production plant to Ankerbrot’s 100 shops with battery-electric trucks. It included recommendations for action and findings for the production site planning process.
