GO-GREEN WITH LINKER
The call for green fulfillment
The world must become sustainable, we make our contribution by offering our clients the use of local warehouses, thanks to which they can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of goods supplies.
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 the spirit of sustainability is one of the biggest challenges of modern logistics.
Check out how we implement it in our sustainable work on green fulfilment!

Linker's Cloud Sustainable Way
As a company that takes a responsible approach to business, we recognise these issues - we are not indifferent to them. We strive to reduce our carbon footprint and care for the environment by betting on:
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.
Eco-friendly partners and customers
When deciding to cooperate, we pay particular attention to how our partners try to minimise their carbon and ecological footprint. We are extremely proud to have the pleasure of working with such eco-freaks as InPost and Packhelp.
Awareness of the situation is the basis of any action and drive for change. This is why we are so keen to share our knowledge - both with our customers and partners.
