Bolloré Logistics Singapore Launches Biodiesel Haulage Service With L'oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific

Bolloré Logistics Singapore and L'Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific have jointly a launched a biofuel solution for local trucking services that will be used for delivery of L’Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific’s beauty products across the country. This development further marks a new stage in the collaboration between the two companies and is driven by their respective sustainability commitments.

 

The new transportation solution uses B20 biodiesel and was co-designed with Richland Logistics – an industry leader with a dedicated fleet and commitment to developing green solutions. It was created from a mixture of used cooking oil and regular diesel. Each year, a potential 20,0001 tonnes of waste cooking oil is generated and disposed of in Singapore. Repurposing this waste cooking oil would be more resource-efficient and would contribute to a circular economy.

 

The roll-out of this service follows the 2019 launch in Singapore of a fleet of electric vehicles dedicated to last-mile delivery. These initiatives are part of Bolloré Logistics’ Powering Sustainable Logistics programme which aims to reduce its transport services' scope 3 CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030 (based on 2019 emissions).

 

"As a unique beauty leader, we are aware that the way we operate can encourage others to do likewise. Our collaboration with Bolloré Logistics Singapore to launch a more sustainable trucking solution demonstrates both companies’ commitment to a process of continuous and incremental improvement. Led by our sustainability program, L’Oréal for the Future, we want to be a catalyst of change in the travel retail beauty sector and beyond, and to inspire the industry to take action with us,” says Vincent Neyton, Operations Director at L'Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific.

 

"Green logistics is the future. The switch to biofuel helps to close the circle on our sustainability efforts for road transport. By working with both our suppliers and our customers, we are taking another step towards building a sustainable supply chain. Bolloré Logistics Singapore will continue to work with L'Oréal Travel Retail Asia Pacific to improve the carbon efficiency of its freight and logistics solutions,” states Frédéric Marcerou, Managing Director of Bolloré Logistics Singapore.
