Business Activities -Logistics / Transportation-
The Ricoh Group is working to reduce CO2 emissions and costs from transportation by global optimization of SCM.
To achieve a sustainable society, one of the most important issues is to reduce CO2 emissions from logistics.
For this purpose, it is essential to optimize efficiency of logistics by minimizing wasteful operations and wastage related to transportation generated in supply chains. In our approach to this challenge, visual presentation of logistical flows are provided, data linking logistical costs and CO2 emissions obtained, bottlenecks identified, and improvement measures undertaken.
To strengthen the effects of these improvement efforts, we work to ensure that activities and related information are shared across the company. Specifically, giving priority to such issues as direct delivery to customers, cargocarrying efficiency, and modal shifts, we are making concerted efforts at all the divisions involved, from product planning to customer contacts, aiming to further reduce environmental impact.
