Now in their 14th year, Parcel and Postal Technology International Awards recognize and reward the latest achievements and developments in the mail and express industry. We are delighted that for 2022 Asendia has been shortlisted for two awards.
Asendia has been shortlisted for the environmental achievement of the year and Asendia UK for the sorting and fulfilment technology of the year category.
About the environmental achievement of the year:
Asendia proudly achieved 100% carbon neutrality in January 2022, and this is the reason we entered the award. We now offset 100% of carbon emissions related to transportation of parcels, including first mile (pick-up) in the country of origin, and last-mile delivery in the destination country by our delivery partners. This covers all the scope 3 emissions, and Asendia also offsets 100% of carbon emissions from our buildings, machinery, employee business travel and returns.
About the sorting and fulfilment technology:
In an industry first, Asendia UK has successfully installed automated sorting and six new robots for over-labelling at its parcel processing center at Heathrow, fully operational from the end of May 2022.
The system has boosted parcel throughput for our clients – e-commerce retailers. Asendia UK has invested in these improvements, and is already seeing a host of benefits to the business and our retailer partners.
