How to reduce logistics activities carbon footprint ?
Awareness for a green logistics, especially on transport
Logistics refers to the management of physical flows and their data, in order to make available the resources corresponding to specific needs, respecting the economic and legal conditions, the degree of quality of service expected and safety and security conditions. In order to ensure the link between each part of the chain, the supply chain uses transport. However, in 2013 the European Environment Agency estimates that, despite progress in motorization, truck pollution costs to the collectivity approximately € 45 billion per year in health terms. Moreover 15% of global CO2 emissions are attributed to the transport sector. This is why the supply chain players tend to review their models. There are also cyclical factors that push professionals to adopt and implement a green supply chain: raw materials price instabiliy, increasingly strict regulations and the taxation of polluting activities.
Reverse logistics: a green logistics strategy
Corporate and household awareness on environmental issues and the strengthening of waste management regulation place reverse logistics at a strategic level for industry professionals. Then, a product is not only designed, stored and delivered to a customer. It can go up the supply chain by being collected from the customer to be recycled or reconditioned. This strategy is innovative for a logistics that is no longer unidirectional: from suppliers to users. Following the ecommerce take off, in addition to environmental issues, reverse logistics also allow professionals to ensure their customers to get a good service quality with an optimal return policies.
Although it is impossible to deny the environmental and economic stakes involved in reverse logistics, it remains complex to implement because:
- Difficult returns to predict because of random
- diversity of products and materials to be transported
- Lack of uniformity and quality of packaging back
- Its complex organization: collection and evaluation of returns, repackaging, stock management, recycling or storage of waste
- Plurality of intermediates which it assumes at each step
To be optimal, this green logistics strategy should perfectly situate and optimize the flows between:
- Production and distribution units
- Disassembly or recycling centers
Mapotempo your partner for a green logistics
Reverse logistics is one of the keys to green logistics. It nevertheless presupposes the intensification of transport activity to meet new chains in the supply chain: collection, recycling, repackaging, etc. Mapotempo acts on one of the key activities of logistics but also one of the most polluting: transport. By planning and optimizing your routes, we allow you to reduce the number of kilometers (10 to 30%) of your fleet and your emissions of CO2. Mapotempo is therefore part of your reverse logistics strategy.
