The Group's success depends on our ability to continuously improve the quality of our products and services to satisfy our increasingly demanding customers and consumers. Operational logistics is an essential component in the life and availability of your products. Lactalis logistics and transport policy, an extension of the Lactalis Group's policy, is based on our ability to respond at any moment and at controlled costs to the service expectations of our customers, while preserving the quality and safety of the foodstuffs entrusted to us, and in respect of each employee.
I am determined to set clear and achievable objectives by allocating human and material resources necessary for their achievement. Reaching our objectives requires personal involvement of each and every one of us, based on the three values of the group: ambition, commitment and simplicity. „
LOGISTICS AND TRANSPORT an important leverage for significant reductions in the environmental footprint
The Lactalis Group internally manages a large part of its warehousing and transport logistics. This global vision allows us to use every possible lever in order to reduce the environmental footprint of these energy-consuming activities. Thus, the renewal of the fleet of haulage vehicles is only achieved through the purchase of new equipment that meets the most environmentally friendly Euro 6 standard. In addition, to reduce fuel consumption, all vehicles are equipped with deflectors and low-resistance tires. In addition, drivers are trained in eco-driving.
At the same time, whether it is between industrial and logistics sites or directly to the customer's platforms, daily management of flows and counter-flows helps to maximize the filling of trailers and limit the amount of kilometers travelled as much as possible.
Our approach "Objective CO² - Carriers make a commitment".
As far as transport equipment is concerned, the Lactalis Group has advocated that 44-tonne vehicles and double-decker vehicles must be allowed to travel in France, thus reducing the number of lorries on the roads. With the same objective in mind, 25% of the refrigerated trailers in the internal fleet are road/rail compatible, which still has a great potential for development. Finally, all our refrigerated warehouse facilities, including the new warehouse in Saint-Vulbas (01), benefit from the knowledge acquired from the Group's industrial expertise.
