Sonepar exceeds customers’ expectations with an environmental report via Softlogs

In spring 2022, Softlogs launched its new module – environmental reporting. This module has become popular with customers since they save time and get better precision on environmental reporting.

Sonepar has been a customer of Softlogs for seven years and is one of the customers who have adopted this module.

With this solution, we can now report our climate footprint down to order level, which means that we can compile the climate footprint for our customers. As a supplier, there are many demands in this area and it feels reassuring to be able to offer this to our customers. We are now working on presenting simulated emissions in advance in our online portal, so that the customer can influence their footprint when ordering – says Harald Hansen Logistics Director of Sonepar Norge AS.

The climate reporting from Softlogs is based on the GLEC Framework (Global Logistics Emissions Council Framework). This means that you can calculate the climate footprint on the transport link without collecting data from your transporters, even on multimodal transport. You can continuously monitor and follow trends to see if the measures have the desired effect. In this way, we have a complete picture of the period’s emission figures.

– With increased focus and demands from customers and the customer’s customer, this is a module that has become very popular with our customers and we hope to be able to help more people visualize the climate footprint of shipping in the future – says Jon Arild Ludvigsen, Managing Director at Softlogs.

Are you curious about environmental reporting and how you can use this in your company? On Thursday 28 September 13.00-13.20 Softlogs is holding a free webinar on the topic of environmental reporting.
