FM Logistic and Wella go for ‘zero-emission logistics’ in Spain 16 November 2021

The companies are also working to reduce paper and plastic use

FM Logistic’s Spanish arm and the hair and beauty company Wella have signed an agreement to develop ‘zero-emission logistics’ in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

FM Logistic provides logistics for Wella in its LEED Gold-certified warehouse in Illescas, in the Toledo province of Spain. The two companies are particularly striving to minimise the use of plastic in day-to-day operations. For example, they are now using recycled paper instead of plastic bubbles to secure products inside cardboard boxes. These boxes come in five different sizes so as to pack anything without wasting space. Wella is using 45.0% less cardboard and 40.0% less filler paper.

FM Logistic and Wella are also looking for alternatives to plastic for securing packages on pallets and are trying to see how other materials such as resin can be used.

As for energy sources, the Illescas warehouse runs on 100.0% renewable energy. Moreover, FM Logistic is planning to open a hydrogen charging station in Illescas to fuel forklifts as of the first quarter of 2022.

FM Logistic Iberica wants to achieve with Wella and all its customers, is logistics based on recycling, efficient waste management and zero plastics.
