Alcohol-Free Truck

THE PROJECT: ALCOHOL-FREE TRUCK

Sofidel has always promoted a culture of health, from the production facilities to the health and hygiene characteristics of its finished products, up until their distribution via road transport.

Aware of the dramatic importance of road safety, Sofidel recently felt duty bound to commit itself on this front too, given the large number of vehicles that annually transport its products on Europe’s roads (35.000 in Italy; 185.000 in Europe).

This has led to the creation of Alcohol-Free Truck, a unique and innovative project in the tissue sector that promotes a policy of protecting and safeguarding road safety and safety in the workplace against alcohol-related issues.
