Approach in Sales and Logistics
RISO KAGAKU CORPORATION attempts the reduction of CO2 emission or wastes, through switching to the transportation means of lower environmental loads, i.e., modal shifts and employment of reusable packing materials.
RISO started the modal shift where conventional transportation by trucks or airplanes has been switched to mass transportation means, such as railway or marine transport, because these are more environment-friendly.
It generally indicates the change of means of transport; it specifically implies shift from trucks or airplanes transportation to rails or sea transportation to reduce of green house gases or nitrogen oxides to the environment.
RISO and Cleanup Co., Ltd. together started the implementation of a consolidated transport strategy based on the Strategic Logistics Information Model (SLIM)* in October 2003. This joint initiative has contributed to improved transport efficiency, effectively reducing fuel consumption per unit of freight transportation (tkm).
*SLIM (Strategic Logistics Information Model):
Based on this model, the Strategic Logistics Partners (SLP) Community Information Center centrally manages delivery and other information collected from corporate clients to improve the full load ratio and the operational efficiency of logistics operations in general. Corporate clients can check delivery time, shipment weight and volume and other information via the Internet. (Source: Cargo News No. 3071)
