LOCKEN reaffirms its commitment to developing a sustainable development strategy

As part of its international expansion and sustainable development policy, Locken is restructuring its logistics processes and upgrading its delivery lead times. 

 

Taking into consideration the imperative CO2 and carbon impact reduction targets central to its sustainable development policy, Locken conducted a complete review of processes at its European logistics center near Lyon (France).

An analysis of transportation flows highlighted areas for significant improvement and identified opportunities to reduce packaging consumption significantly.

Following the introduction of new processes, the volume of packaging used has fallen by an average of 20%, triggering a corresponding reduction in logistics costs and delivery lead times.
