PACK & SHIP

Eco-friendly packing and shipping for individuals and businesses

Going green in logistics is not something just for big companies. Individual shippers and e-commerce can also take small measures to ensure they send parcels in the most sustainable way possible. Here is how:

  • Choose recyclable, reusable and biodegradable packaging materials;
  • Don’t over-pack: choose shipping boxes big enough but not too big;
  • Go for standard services and consolidated shipping: booking shipping in advance allows you to choose less polluting shipping methods such as parcel delivery by vans and trucks that would be anyways circulating;
  • Choose environmentally-friendly logistics companies;
  • When shipping in long distances, opt for rail freight,
  • Adopt reverse logistics strategies by reselling, reusing, and recycling returned goods.

As for freight deliveries or transport in long distances, rail freight proves to be the most sustainable method: not only does it have lower CO2 emissions, but it also allows a more efficient use of space and reduces noise levels.

What is meant by green logistics?
Green logistics includes all the measures taken to make freight transport and parcel delivery more sustainable and environmentally friendly. Measuring how green are the logistics operations of a company means assessing how much energy they use and what type, what are their collection and distribution strategies across their supply chain and how they treat and manage the waste that is generated by these operations.
Is rail freight greener than road freight?
Rail freight is more environmentally friendly than road freight by spending 4 times less fuel and producing 76% less CO2 emissions than trucks. When combined properly, the usage of trucks and trains can make a big difference in cargo transport across long distances when it comes to sustainable shipping.
