Silvan focuses on a sustainable moving range and replaces 200 trailers

Jan 7, 2023

January 6, 2023 The construction market Silvan has just replaced 200 of their free loan trailers and is using the opportunity to focus on a more sustainable moving range. The desire to offer top-quality rental trailers to the Danes is part of Silvan’s sustainable strategy, where sharing economy is also the key word in, for example, tool rental and rental of electric cargo bikes. Silvan, in collaboration with Freetrailer, has just replaced 200 trailers in 41 warehouses All over the country. The new trailers are designed just like the sustainable moving boxes that can be bought in Silvan. The moving boxes are created with care, which means that they are produced from wood fibers from FSC-certified forests in Sweden. According to Trine Bredow, who is Project Manager, Commercial Excellence at Silvan, the design must draw attention to the possibility of moving a little greener. – The very special wood fibers that have been used for Silvan’s moving boxes come from forestry, where wildlife is protected and no more is felled than the forest can reproduce. In this way, we can offer the Danes a green and sustainable moving box when moving or when storage is simply required. The design of the trailers should remind us of that in everyday life, says Trine Bredow. The sharing economy is accelerating The collaboration between Silvan and Freetrailer, which specializes in the lending of free trailers, has existed since 2010, and over time this has resulted in thousands of free trailer loans from Silvan’s warehouses. Freetrailer director Philip Filipsen sees the new trailers as a lever to accelerate the sharing economy in Denmark even more. – The sharing economy and sustainability are high on our agenda, and it permeates pretty much everything we do here at Freetrailer. Seen in that light, it is simply fantastic to have a partner like Silvan, who dares to think outside the box and make creative, fun and environmentally sound measures for the benefit of customers. With the new trailers, we are taking another big step in terms of speeding up the environmentally sound sharing economy in Denmark, and that is really positive, says Philip Filipsen. Interaction with creative agency The design of the new trailers has been made in collaboration with the agency ZUPA, which is Silvan’s creative partner. According to Trine Bredow, one element in particular was important in the creative development process. – We have deliberately designed the new trailers as our moving boxes. We want to create a large degree of recognition among Danes, both when it comes to drawing attention to the greener choice in relation to moving, but also in relation to our visions of sustainability and a strong focus on environmental considerations in general in business, says Trine Breedow. The 200 trailers that Freetrailer replaces at Silvan will not go to waste. The condition of them is still so good that they will be included in new solutions with other partners at Freetrailer. *The article has been translated based on the content of IT-Kanalen by .
