of French people say they are concerned about climate issues and want to be a force for change
of parcels are delivered in France every day, a quantity that can turn into a plague for the environment.
of French people say they are willing to wait longer to receive their parcel if it is delivered by an ecological delivery method.
The logistics industry is one of the most dynamic sectors in France. An important part of this activity is linked to the growth of online orders and purchases. Indeed, France is the 3rd largest e-commerce market in Europe.
However, the logistics sector generates a carbon footprint that is more than significant: road transport, trucks, packaging, use of fossil fuels, emission of fine particles... It will therefore have to reinvent itself and take on new challenges to find more environmentally friendly solutions.
In addition, drivers will soon have to face traffic restrictions in large cities such as Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Lille, Rouen... These cities will indeed ban access to thermal vehicles considered too polluting. Faced with this ecological policy, delivery professionals must evolve their offer by proposing delivery options that meet these new environmental criteria.
Midi Pile wishes to inscribe its transport activity specialized in last mile delivery in an ecological and committed approach. The company has set itself the objective of reducing by 20% to 70% the emissions linked to its transport of goods to mitigate climate change and its dangers.
The big cities of France are very populated and therefore generate a very important pollution linked to human activity. In order to ensure that our delivery service does not impact the air quality in urban areas, Midi Pile has taken the challenge of ecologistics.
We have developed a fleet of eco-responsible vehicles. Bicycle, cargo bike, electric scooter...
These modes of transport and delivery perfectly meet the expectations of customers and companies, while drastically limiting CO2 emissions.
Greening the means of transport for last mile delivery is good.
Improving upstream supply chain processes is even better! The work of parcel carriers has been reviewed thanks to our specialized tools in order to optimize each journey.
For this, three fundamental actions:
- The ecological ambition does not aim at creating discrimination according to the delivery areas. Depending on the quantity (small or medium vehicle) and the area (suburbs and rural areas) to be delivered, it happens that only thermal vehicles can be used due to the lack of recharging stations and autonomy of existing vehicles. Our commitment is to reduce our carbon footprint without refusing to deliver to cities lacking the necessary infrastructure for electric vehicles.
The optimization of the route allows us to reduce CO2 emissions by an average of 30%.
- Respecting the delivery slot chosen by the customer when ordering maximizes the chances of being able to hand-deliver the package to the recipient. No delivery notice if the package is too big to fit in the mailbox.
It sounds basic, but avoiding the multiplication of trips to deliver a package is a real factor to be more efficient and to take care of the planet by limiting the flows.
- Set up the most coherent routes to ensure a fast delivery despite the traffic. Thanks to software specific to the delivery business, it is possible to organize the carriers' routes in order to limit the number of kilometers traveled between the various recipients. All this combined with a clean vehicle and eco-driving, ecological objectives can be achieved.
Our mission is also to develop the business to try to deliver better. Solutions and less polluting vehicles (2 to 3-wheelers, electric, hybrid or NGV) are developed every day to reduce the impact of transport on the planet.
Reducing our energy consumption, participating in ecological awareness, turning to renewable and low-carbon energies, setting up an environmental code or a charter label on sustainable transport... The future of delivery can be ecological if all the players in the transport and delivery sector give themselves the means to do so.
With Midi Pile, deliveries are redesigned to
Our CSR values are not limited to the environment. Our social commitment is also strong. The company promotes gender equality in the delivery business.
Establishing parity by recruiting as many women as men in a predominantly male world is a real social challenge.
Our company puts a lot of effort into the safety and well-being of our courier teams. To guarantee this, our delivery drivers are well equipped and trained in road safety to prevent any danger or damage to the goods.
In spite of a strong growth in the demand for delivery since the confinement, Midi Pile tries to maximize customer satisfaction. We take great care to avoid all types of delays and lost packages. Fully aware of the importance of their role in the customer's shopping experience, our delivery men and women take their work to heart and always strive to provide courteous service.
