FREIGHT & TRANSPORT
All of our shipping is carried out by external forwarders. Our European freight is transported by truck, while our products from Asia arrive by sea. As a rule, we avoid air transport, but exceptions do happen – on occasion we choose to make certain high-priority shipments by air. The general split for the different modes of freight transport is:
68% transported by sea
30% transported by road
2% transported by air
In 2020, our air transport increased to 4%, due to delays caused by the COVID-19 situation. We aim to get that number back down to 2% in the second half of 2021.
We are continuously working to optimize our procedures in order to make them as efficient and space-saving as possible, keeping both costs and CO2 emissions to a minimum. We work with specialised software to calculate how we best can utilize the container capacity for shipments.
