“Trans­porta­tion modes are a key fac­tor in pro­duc­ing car­bon foot­print that ve­hi­cles emits into the en­vi­ron­ment reg­u­larly and same is a ma­jor con­cern to ad­dress by any lo­gis­tics ser­vice provider. SCM com­pa­nies need to look for im­proved ways to re­duce their car­bon foot­print and this can be done through op­ti­mi­sa­tion of ship­ments. Op­ti­mi­sa­tion of the ship­ments could be con­sol­i­dat­ing a lot of small ship­ments through a con­sol­i­da­tion point, con­sol­i­dat­ing mul­ti­ple ship­ments from a sin­gle ven­dor or con­sol­i­dat­ing mul­ti­ple ship­ments from mul­ti­ple ven­dors. The same thing is adopted by SILPL and we are as­sured about the re­sults of the same, as we have seen the de­crease in the zero/less pro­duc­tiv­ity mileage of ve­hi­cles, which ul­ti­mately lead to low car­bon emis­sion. SILPL also switch to 100 per cent CNG ve­hi­cles for lo­cal dis­tri­bu­tion through which we re­duce around 10 per cent of our car­bon foot­prints. At the end, the en­tire SCM in­dus­try need to come to­gether to im­ple­ment a sus­tain­abil­ity strat­egy in their op­er­a­tions and the top man­age­ment com­mit­ment will play a prom­i­nent role to be suc­cess­ful in it,” shares San­jay P Rathi, MD, Sam­park In­dia Lo­gis­tics.
