The rise of electronic commerce and the growing deliberation of markets favored by globalization, has brought a significant increase in the weight of the logistics sector in the global economy. That is why the concern has been raised to ensure the survival of the sector and our planet equally, this is where sustainable logistics comes into play.
And the truth is that there are more than enough reasons to worry, because according to the EEA, CO2 emissions in Spain have doubled in recent years.
All this, together with the growing concern of the people, has created that they take letters in the matter, creating normative as the famous “normative Euro 6“.
What is sustainable logistics?
Sustainable logistics aims to significantly reduce CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. For this, innovation is a very important factor, which seeks a close balance between economic growth, care for the environment and the health of people.
Why is sustainable logistics important?
Sustainability is not a change that we should expect, on the contrary, we must grasp it with force to take it as an obligation and a commitment. The effects of a sustainable logistics are:
• Considerable reduction of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere.
• The sustainability of the fleet and the machinery used is linked to innovation.
• Creates a deep-rooted positive culture in the company.
• Optimizes the available resources.
The future of ecommerce goes through sustainable logistics.
It is not enough just to be efficient in economic terms in the transport of goods, but to offer added value to the customer. Something that can be translated in terms of reliability, security and of course, in policies that do not destroy the planet in which we live.
That is why the new business models are no longer satisfied with efficient services in economic terms.
Transport companies must be updated to meet the needs of customers, with sustainable logistics one of them as a philosophy to be part of their DNA.
In BCN Euroexpress we do not face these measures as an obligation, but as a challenge in the constant improvement of our land transport services. Being 100% committed to the environment means that our fleet and machinery comply with the regulations set by the European Union for environmental improvement and the reduction of polluting gases.
