swissconnect ag is among the finalists of the most important European accolade for sustainability in the transport and logistics industry
The Eco Performance Award honours companies that harmonise economic, environmental and social aspects. In addition to economic success and dedication to environmental protection, commitment to one's own employees and to society is also acknowledged. Over 100 applicants from all over Europe applied for this major award, and swissconnect was nominated as a finalist in the 'Medium-Sized Companies 2019' category.
Lucerne, 27th of June 2019 - Michael Hauenstein, Head of Marketing & Sales
Multi-stage application process with award ceremony in Munich
The seven finalists from three countries all underwent a multi-stage application process, where the individual companies were thoroughly examined and the sustainability performance was assessed across three dimensions (economic, environmental and social). According to Prof. Wolfgang Stoelzle (Chairman of the Jury and Managing Director of the Institute for Supply Chain Management of the University of St. Gallen), swissconnect made it to the final because the multi-modal courier platform represents a sustainability innovation in Europe and swissconnect ag is considered a pioneer with its concept. It allows for nearly CO2-neutral transport performance thanks to the 'bike/train' combination. Particularly noteworthy is the ICT platform for handling its services together with 80 courier companies and ten railway companies." The award ceremony was held in Munich on 5 June 2019, during the world's most important trade fair for logistics and transport. The 'medium-sized companies' category was won by the company Rigterink Logistik GmbH & Co. KG from Germany - to whom we send our sincere congratulations!
We at swissconnect are proud finalists and are pleased that our efforts over the last 20 years in the field of sustainable express logistics, associated with our Swiss-wide courier platform, are recognised on an international level.
