Clément Sabourin, Co-founder of Courant Plus.

From the warehouse to the final consumer's door, via the stores, a company's supply chain is complex and difficult to reorganize. Decarbonizing it can therefore seem like a real headache and a financial drain. But by leveraging innovations that are becoming more democratic, innovative urban projects like Colibri, and being open to reorganizing its operations, logistics can become cleaner, but also more fluid, agile and resilient.
