Transporting sugar beets from field to factory from September until January is a logistical task. In Nordzucker Group, in 2016, 86% of the beets were transported by truck instead of tractors. An increase by 6% since 2013. Switching to trucks has resulted in a higher load per truck and therefore reduced the amounts of transports on the road. On average trucks can transport on average 28,9 tons, while tractors carry 21,2 tons. In Nordzucker Group the average distance for our beet transports from farm to factory is 46 km.
