We pursue ambitious targets of operational efficiency that we develop together with our suppliers for internal and external stakeholders

Logistics services

As part of the Supply Chain organization, Logistics procurement is seeking the most efficient solution to serve our customers while optimizing the cost and the CO2 footprint of our supply chain.

Safety as well as strict compliance with all local regulations are part of our DNA; we conduct periodic assessments of our suppliers with regards to their HSE policy and records.
