Navlandis, committed to the environment
World Environment Day
World Environment Day was established by the United Nations (UN) in 1972 to raise awareness among the world’s population of the importance of caring for our ecosystems and promoting respect for the environment.
The invitation is for everyone to support through real actions. To individuals, encouraging them to improve their consumption habits. To companies by developing more conscious and ecological models. Governments to protect wilderness areas. Teachers to educate in natural values. Young people to raise their voices for the future of the planet. Environmental protection requires everyone’s support.
«We are the generation who can make peace with nature», and at Navlandis we are clear about this because from the beginning we have been making use of innovation for the optimization of all our resources.
Logistics and its implication
In Logistics, a sector in which we are mainly involved, it is known that international maritime transport represents approximately 80% of the global transport of goods between peoples and communities around the world and it is also the most efficient and cost-effective international transport system for most goods; it is a safe and low-cost means of international transport, which promotes trade between nations and peoples, while contributing to their prosperity.
But, just as maritime transport generates multiple benefits for international trade, there are also some adverse situations, since more than 3% of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions can be related to naval transport, due to the fact that these large ships use dirty and polluting fossil fuels for their propulsion.
Innovation is at our core and SDG 9 gives us the guide
Navlandis, a company with a strong R&D component that aims to create innovative solutions to current needs of the logistics and transportation sector, we pursue the fulfillment of the Sustainable Development Goals and through the ninth goal, we are committed to innovation as it plays a key role in introducing and promoting new technologies, facilitates international trade and enables the efficient use of resources.
Our product: Zbox container
The Zbox and its contribution to environmental conservation:
- Greatly reduces the economic and environmental costs of repositioning empty containers.
- Provides value to all the agents involved in the chain.
- Optimization is achieved by folding the container when it is empty.
- Five containers can be transported as a single package in the same space as a standard container.
- This translates into direct cost savings.
- We can save 80% of the transport and storage space, 20% of the CO2 emissions, and 50% of the operational costs of transporting empty containers.
According to WWF in its document «Principles for a sustainable blue economy», to achieve this Blue Economy in the seas and coastal regions, land-based impacts on marine ecosystems must be addressed and actors in the chain must also work to promote the development of a sustainable green economy on land.
The Zbox is a product that allows the optimization of processes both for maritime transport and for all processes in the chain. Inland transportation, loading and unloading, warehousing, etc. We recognize that the maritime and land economy are interrelated and that many of the threats facing marine environments originate on land.
The oceans absorb about 30 percent of the carbon dioxide produced by humans, buffering the impacts of global warming. The importance of their conservation is fundamental to maintaining a sustainable economy for the future, one that continues to benefit international trade and does not lead to the degradation of our ecosystems.
Minimizing and addressing the effects of ocean acidification, including through greater innovative cooperation at all levels, is the commitment we make at Navlandis in each of our product creation processes.
