Smart logistics

NewCold wants to make transportation less harmful for the environment. We develop with our smart logistics the most efficient routes that results in small travel distance and less harmful emissions. Such an approach supports the achievement of the following SDGs.

MAKE SMART LOGISTICS FRIENDLY FOR OUR PLANET

Fuel-Efficient and High-Volume Trucks

The annual average economic losses of climate-related disasters are measured in billions of dollars, affecting both businesses and society. Greenhouse emissions are the key factor contributing to global warming and, hence, causing the problem of climate change. Having a fleet of approximately 200 vehicles worldwide, NewCold recognizes their negative environmental impact and undertakes proactive actions to reduce harm from its vehicles.

Our company uses only most fuel-efficient trucks that comply with Euro VI emission standards. This results in lower fuel expenses and less CO2 emissions for the same traveling distance.

In the UK we utilize double deck trailers with a capacity of 40 industrial pallets. Such trailers together with our high-volume warehouses enable us to create the most efficient routes with customer locations closer to each other.  Our logistic strategy aims to minimize the number of kilometers between customer delivery points leading to smaller traveling distance, less fuel consumption and air pollution. All of our trucks are equipped with Transics Board Computer system that allows to not only communicate with drivers but also collect such data as fuel usage, speed, emergency breaks and idling. These help NewCold to monitor driving behavior and prevent aggressive driving that might cause additional environmental harm and decrease the efficiency of our transportation.

PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS

PROFIT TOGETHER WITH SUPPLIERS

Industry Partnerships

NewCold believes that sustainable development through smart logistics is only possible when acting together with other businesses. That is why we do not extensively expand our logistic business. Instead we strive to actively collaborate with other companies and create maximum value for all the parties. Together with our key partners we deliver the most efficient logistic solutions by increasing the drop size, consolidating the destinations of NewCold’s customers and addressing the individual customer needs. To ensure that clients’ inventory is being delivered from the warehouses to distribution centers and otherway on time, NewCold monitors the performance of its main transportation partners. Every month our company identifies top 10 suppliers whose trucks systematically arrive on time or late. This enables us to engage in partnerships solely with the most reliable logistic companies and advise our customers on their choice of 3PL provider.

PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS

The average fill rate of NewCold’s trailers never falls below 90%

NewCold also addresses one of the main challenges of European logistic industry – insufficient load of trailers. According to statistics, 20% of trucks in Europe run either partially loaded or empty. Our company does not let its trucks travel at high fuel and environmental costs that substantially outweigh the benefits of transportation. Therefore, the average fill rate of NewCold’s trailers never falls below 90%. In addition, we actively connect our logistic partners and main customers to increase trailer occupancy at industry level. Such collaboration improves the efficiency of the whole logistic sector by the reduction in the number of vehicles on the roads, traffic jams and harmful emissions. Hence, NewCold’s partnerships enable to maintain healthy competition within the industry, leading to innovative solutions which drive economic growth and profitability.

FRESH AIR FOR OUR PEOPLE

Minimum Trucks’ Emissions

The United Nations’ figures show that 7 million of people die every year from exposure to fine particles in polluted air. NewCold understands the importance of air quality for the health and well-being of people. Therefore, our company wants to completely eliminate unnecessary air pollution caused by our transportation services.

To ensure secure delivery of our customer food products, NewCold tracks the temperature inside the trailers and their life-time geo-position via “Cargobull Telematics Portal”. Each of our trailers is connected to the telematics portal which delivers real time data and enables to compare actual trailers’ locations with their planned schedules, monitor loading and unloading time, determine if a trailer drives loaded or empty. Based on these data, we can discover and eliminate wasteful activities in our delivery process, optimize transportation costs and make logistics service more environmentally friendly.

By combining our inbound and outbound logistics, we substantially reduce the number of kilometers our trucks drive empty and, hence, produce extra CO2 emissions. During the last year our empty kilometers travel rate was 16%, meaning that 84% of traveling time NewCold’s trucks drive filled and, therefore, create value both for customers and the company. Our future target is to decrease the number of empty kilometers to less than 10%, in order to avoid fuel sunk costs and harmful emissions that do not result in additional revenue.
