DPD Switzerland and ImagineCargo combine their efforts for ecological parcel delivery
Buchs, 2 March 2020 – DPD Switzerland handles its environmental responsibility by delivering all parcels with a carbon neutral footprint, at no additional cost for its customers. The next steps to reduce harmful emissions will now be taken hand in hand with ImagineCargo.
Looking to the future, DPD Switzerland and ImagineCargo increase their efforts to guarantee environmentally friendly and sustainable deliveries and target especially city centres, where drivers can move around by bike or electric vehicle. This common activity should allow to other complementary services for consignees to be introduced.
DPD’s experience, parcel delivery provider in Switzerland for 27 years, combined with the start-up mind and « zero-emission delivery » objective of ImagineCargo will allow to make last-mile delivery even more flexible and to create added value, both for population and the environment.
DPD handles its environmental responsibility by delivering all parcels with a carbon neutral footprint, at no additional cost for its customers. To offset unavoidable emissions related to deliveries, DPD is funding projects promoting renewable energy and clean energy production.
Since 2017, ImagineCargo increases e-commerce customers’ satisfaction by promoting fast, flexible, and climate neutral deliveries. Therefore, all its last-mile deliveries are carbon free. While many start-ups in the e-commerce logistics only care about last-mile delivery – the last part of the journey to the consignee, ImagineCargo covers the entire supply chain, from the central warehouse.
