L’Oréal Opérations and Bolloré Logistics Singapore have implemented the first innovative trucking solution in APAC allowing double-stacking of cargoes. The design phase lasted six months and close creativity and collaboration to implement the most suitable solution.Since then, it has been used to transport L’Oréal products on the cross-border road between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This system of eighteen collapsible racks was tailor-made for L’Oréal needs: specific dimensions that can fit both Euro and US pallets, 100% made of steel to ensure the maximum solidity. Those collapsible racks have been integrated into the road transporter’s trucks.
The benefits have been significant both on operations improvement and on CO2 emissions for this route. It allowed to save up to 15% on freight costs compared to a traditional trucking system, with an excellent stability during transport thanks to a lashing solution. The racks can support up to 500kg per pallet, and pallets build-up can be up to 1.1 meters in height. In addition, this new trucking solution saves up to 30% of CO2 emissions – a significant improvement on the road to greener transportation.
Sustainability is a cornerstone of L’Oréal’s Sharing Beauty With All program for positive impact on society and the environment, and this collaboration with Bolloré Logistics Singapore is part of the concerted sustainability efforts that L’Oréal Singapore has been driving. Both L’Oréal and Bolloré Logistics have been fully engaged on this topic for several years, implementing new innovative solutions to lower their environmental footprint throughout the supply chain.
