- The success of the NACEX “Choose your sustainable delivery and receive a lot more” campaign has contributed to reducing the company’s emissions.
- NACEX avoided the release of 2,251 tonnes of CO2 last December, with respect to the ratios obtained in January of the same financial year.
NACEX, Logista’s express parcel and documentation delivery company, managed to reduce the CO2 emissions produced per shipment by 35% by the end of the year 2020.
In order to achieve this reduction, in past months the company has focussed its efforts on improving “last mile” efficiency by decreasing the number of trips by way of different initiatives, among which driving up deliveries via its NACEX.shop network, formed by commercial establishments and Smart Lockers, has been crucial.
Thanks to the “Choose your sustainable delivery and receive a lot more” campaign, NACEX has managed to increase the delivery of shipments via NACEX.shop. Currently, there is a broad network in Spain and Portugal that provides consignees with close to 2,000 “nearby” points, where they can pick up or return their online shopping.
During the last financial year, it was confirmed that the rise in expeditions going to these points affects, among other things, the reduction in CO2 emissions, representing the best sustainable alternative to traditional home delivery. This way, the company avoided the release of 2,251 tonnes of CO2 last December, with respect to the ratios obtained in January of the same financial year. In other words, 1,190 hectares of forest* have been conserved.
These indicators reinforce the strategy designed for the eCommerce sector, which is now fully integrated into the new reality we live in, and which consists of widening the network of “nearby” establishments and smart lockers for bringing the shipments closer to the consignee, while at the same time reducing the number of last mile deliveries.
By adding this initiative to the series of measures for minimizing its environmental impact, the company ended the year 2020 with a reduction in its carbon footprint, an objective it is fully committed to as part of its strategy in the area of sustainability.
NACEX actively participates in Logista’s Quality and Environment Master Plan, the company it forms a part of, and which has been included as the only European distributor in its “A-List” group for the past five years.
