Sustainability - the basic principle

The ecommerce and logistics industries are making a significant contribution to climate change, the depletion of natural resources, and the devastation of the environment. 

The demand for transport itself has a growth perspective.
A WEF report from January 2020 predicts that demand for freight will triple by 2050, while demand for air transport will double.  

At the same time, the need for express delivery continues to grow among e-commerce customers. Reconciling these two significantly different requirements in a spirit of sustainability is one of the biggest challenges of modern logistics.  

Check out how we implement it in our sustainable work!

Strategically located warehouses

We are helping with differentiation of warehousing and fulfillment points. By shortening the distance between the warehouse and the delivery address retailers can simply reduce the carbon footprint while gaining a business advantage in the form of simplified scaling as well.
