Petit Forestier takes action on sustainable development
with Club Déméter
This French association brings together public and private bodies involved in the global logistical network, with the aim of promoting and implementing operational solutions that will bring environmental impacts under control, and, in the end, improve national and international decision-maker awareness.
At the “urban logistics: noise pollution and nocturnal deliveries” workshop, the Petit Forestier Group and its subsidiary Lecapitaine took a very significant role, alongside the Ville de Paris (Paris city government), the Carrefour Group and STEF-TFE (the refrigerated logistics company that handles Carrefour's deliveries). The aim was to design a nocturnal deliveries experiment using low noise-emission equipment.
Petit Forestier contributed technical and financial support by providing a 21 pallet multi-temperature refrigerated transporter which had been entirely re-tooled to make it as quiet as possible. The vehicle proposed met with the aim of noise emissions lower than 60 dB and the results achieved met with unanimous approval.
Petit Forestier's initiatives towards sustainable development are not always visible to the general public, but they are numerous. They help us to be innovative, and always go the extra step in raising the quality of service that we offer our clients.
