As the temporal distance between customer and product decreases, the conditions for the flows in society also change. The right products must be delivered at the agreed time and in undamaged condition. Safer and more efficient transport solutions are thus a must, as well as a rational and resource-efficient logistics system.
Since all our production takes place in Sweden, and our subcontractors are within a 10 mile radius from us, this has meant that we have had a secure supply chain, even in the midst of the prevailing pandemic, which has put supply chains to the test around the world.
But as products are produced according to the customer's wishes and special needs, the logistics chain has also become increasingly complex. This in turn means an increased need for knowledge and technical development in the logistics flow. The same applies to the growing expectations for safety and environmental awareness. As far as the environmental aspect is concerned, it includes everything from how the products are manufactured and packaged to how they are transported and recycled after consumption.
To succeed in sustainable logistics development in today's society, we need continued investment in new technology and expertise, invest in environmentally friendly production and smarter and more energy-efficient transport solutions.
For Axelent’s part, the environmental thinking and the pursuit of long-term sustainable development permeates all the business areas. In addition to its own production of green electricity from wind power and the ambition to supply fully recyclable products, the company uses local suppliers and environmentally certified transport companies as far as possible.
Axelent has also developed its own packaging system X-Pack 2.0, which utilises a carrier’s cargo space to the maximum, thus reducing the number of transports and minimising transport damage.
Active and committed environmental work is central to Axelent. Two investments in recent years are self-produced green electricity and an efficient packaging system.
Axelent’s customers have high demands, and so do their customers. Electrical company Solotec works a great deal in the food industry and uses only X-Tray.
The year is coming to an end and it is time to sum up 2020. This year I have been entrusted with a new challenge in my life, which includes so many different parts. Above all I have met and been inspired by a lot of wonderful and driven people here at Axelent.
