The Step-by-Step Guide to a Sustainable Supply Chain


Retailers who are ready to embrace the sustainability of their logistics operations as a strategic pillar of their organisation will benefit from operating cost reductions and win over a new generation of consumers.

Retailers should focus on:
1. Elimination of overstock and reduction of waste.
2. Reduce the transportation footprint.

To reduce overstocking and waste, you need to implement different supply models according to the product profile, collaborate with suppliers to improve service models, reduce damaged goods in item handling and look for sustainable substitute materials. Regarding transport, you will also have to optimise routes, bring inventory closer to the end customer and encourage customers to pick-up as opposed to delivery
