Alphatrans BV is proud to announce that it has recently received a rating of 4 stars in the ECOSTARS programme.

What is ECOSTARS?

The European Union launched the ECOSTARS programme in 2009. Seven European cities and regions took part in the programme. Besides Rotterdam, these included South Yorkshire (England), Cantabria (Spain) and Parma (Italy). This project is now being continued with the support of the city of Rotterdam. It is a programme for all national and international freight and passenger carriers in the Netherlands. Whether they are in the public sector or small independent carriers. Freight transport includes vans and trucks, while passenger transport includes buses, touring cars and minibuses.

Through the ECOSTARS programme, carriers can earn stars for sustainable operations. Based on the number of stars, customers can quickly and easily see how clean and sustainable a carrier is. In Rotterdam, more than a hundred ECOSTARS certificates have been issued. There are currently 34 companies with 5 stars. Organisations that improve their operations to be more environmentally friendly can request a new evaluation and thus gain an extra star. In this way, transport companies and other carriers in Rotterdam are ultimately working its way towards five stars for sustainability.
