Sustainability is taking a leading role in many aspects of e-commerce and as the popularity of online shopping continues to gain momentum, businesses from all sectors are rethinking the way they produce and what they sell to consumers.
As Ecommerce Europe puts it: “The e-commerce sector is a bridge between the digitalisation of our society and the transition to a more sustainable economy.”
For customers, the package journey begins when they tap “buy now” and ends on their doorstep. But, of course, there’s a lot more to it. Borderless360’s latest eBook “Climate Conscious Shipping and Fulfillment” takes a look at your package’s journey at every touchpoint in your global supply chain and how you can implement sustainable practices along the way.
We break down optimization techniques, logistics tips, and packaging know-hows. Packaging has been at the core of discussions about sustainability in e-commerce. It is a key introduction to a consumer’s experience of a brand, and is one of the key areas where e-commerce retailers can develop their sustainability credentials.
Correct packaging can reduce costs and emissions while optimizing transportation. Packaging is also now a key element of what makes a retailer sustainable in the eyes of a consumer.
Although it may not be possible to eliminate supply chain emissions 100%, there are many ways we can minimize our impact whilst increasing efficiencies. We also discuss pallet and carton optimization, local fulfillment options, direct injection, order orchestration and the returns process.
And on top of all that, Borderless360 has announced we are officially carbon neutral! We look in detail at how we achieved this status and what it means for our customers.
We hope you enjoy the read.
