The discussions around climate change have led to a massive shift in consumer behaviour as now most prefer retailers that are sustainable. Whilst sustainability may seem like something that is outside the scope of retailers’ portfolios, this is far from the case. In fact, retailers have ample opportunity to infuse their business with sustainability, starting at the very core of their supply chain with operational efficiency. When achieved, a retailer can mitigate waste and reduce their energy consumption, thereby resulting in a more profitable business.
In this interview, Johanna Hainz, Global Head of Retail, explains how efficient planning can help the retail industry become more sustainable.
Freshness goes a long way
It's a long journey that pineapples from Costa Rica must embark on before they reach Canada. However, a lot goes on in between to ensure that these pineapples stay fresh and in peak condition before they reach the Northern Hemisphere. Our Cold Chain Logistics plays a critical role in retaining the freshness of these fruits till they reach the market. Right from working on mapping out every step of the supply chain journey, to ensuring that every pineapple is tested, packaged and cooled within 16 hours before getting shipped in world-class refrigerated Maersk containers.
