GO-GREEN WITH LINKER
The call for green logistics
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 a spirit of sustainability is one of the biggest challenges of modern logistics.
