FREIGHT & TRANSPORT
All of our shipping is carried out by external forwarders. Our European freight is transported by truck, while products from Asia arrive by sea. As a rule, we avoid air transport but on certain occasions choose to make high-priority shipments by air. The general split for the different modes of freight transport is:
53,8% transported by sea
46% transported by road
0,2% transported by air
In 2020, our air transport doubled to 4%, due to delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic; however, in 2021 this was reduced significantly to 0,2%. In turn, our transport by road increased from 30% in 2020 to 46 % in 2021, showing us that we are on the right track.
We are continuously working to optimise our logistic procedures to make them as efficient and space-saving as possible. We measure container space and CO2 emissions though software calculators to keep both costs and the environmental impact of our transport to an absolute minimum.
