Supply chains and the industries around them must evolve. The impact of transportation as a whole (freight and passengers) on the environment makes up for more than a quarter of all the world’s carbon emissions. The system is no longer sustainable and new solutions must be found.

GEODIS is a logistics company with a unified vision for a sustainable future. Managing both physical and electronic flows around the world, GEODIS is committed to overcome the logistics constraints of its clients as environmental challenges continue to grow. From the way products are stored, to their transportation and distribution, GEODIS is using years of collective experience from its team to reduce the carbon footprints and optimise businesses.

“Our mission is to be a growth partner for our clients. This means creating logistics solutions that deliver products across the globe flawlessly and sustainably. At GEODIS, we work hard to play a leading role in the logistics sector in this area. “explained Marie-Christine Lombard, CEO, GEODIS.

The changing times and the immediate effects of the pandemic have been enormous worldwide, and supply chains are no exception. Logistics businesses needed to come up with solutions quickly to keep much needed supply chains from failing, risking even greater catastrophe.

“We were able to take our platforms that we already had in place, and take the work we’ve done over the last several years in robotics, and really focus in on the technology side, and ramp that up quickly to be able to support our clients’ needs.” said Mike Honious, President and CEO of Americas, GEODIS. “Our employees rose to the occasion and were actually providing feedback on what the right areas that we needed to automate.”

From factory floor to the final customer, GEODIS continues to optimise and improve the supply chain despite new challenges. Accepting the new normal and moving forward, GEODIS is able to keep building upon its foundations and provide solutions that both affect individuals and the world.
