Together with transport companies, we worked towards further optimisation of the delivery and return of empty trays and pallets. Sharing information remains key to further optimisation across the supply chain.
Transfesa Logistics continued to operate EPS CoolRail. The frequency of CoolRail increased and the network was expanded with new destinations. This allowed EPS to provide a flexible and high-quality service.
LPR is also working with Transfesa to use rail transportation for the international flows of pallets.
LPR continued to work together with transport partners to optimise transport flows and reduce emissions, in initiatives such as Lean&Green and FRET21. Key themes were the reduction of travel distances, improving the loading degree of trucks, and the transition towards greener carriers and multimodal transport. In France, LPR explored the use of riverboats on the river Seine.
LPR used tooling to further optimise its transport flows, and connections were also made with new transport partners that offer multimodal and/or more sustainable transport.
