Social change and increased environmental awareness
In the course of globalisation and technical progress, not only have imports and exports multiplied, but product cycles have also shortened and new markets have opened up worldwide. However, what is profitable from an economic perspective often means hard work for the environment, sometimes with drastic consequences. CO2 emissions, waste accumulation and resource consumption are rising continuously and promote environmental pollution or concerning climatic changes. The logistics industry in particular has a major influence on this development and is therefore subject to ever stricter environmental requirements. However, environmentally friendly concepts are now far from being contradictory to economic efficiency. Thus, with the correct strategy, companies can achieve sustainable savings in energy as well as surface, material and fuel consumption.
Individual environmental strategy in logistics
LOGSOL develops customised resource management strategies for logistics, appropriate for the customer’s individual structures and requirements. To this end, all relevant areas of the supply chain network are analysed, corresponding demand values and capacity forecasts are produced and harmonious procurement processes are planned.
