Lean and green in practice
Copertiz, supplier of coconut products and substrates, imports coconut turf and chips from different locations in Asia. These containers are shipped to the port of Antwerp, from where they are transported by truck to the production site of Copertiz in Bree. There, the raw material is unloaded with a tipping chassis. After this process, the empty container is transported back to the port of Antwerp by truck.
Copertiz and Gosselin Logistics have already worked together for several years on organizing imports from Asia. Gosselin recently won the “lean and green” award for its efforts in putting forward multimodal alternatives for transportation to and from the port. Gosselin consulted Multimodaal.Vlaanderen for support on this specific case.
