Our optimized logistics and transportation increase efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.
Simplification Is Key
We reduce the volume and weight of our packaging, which further reduces carbon emissions generated during transport.
Increased Rail Shipping Globally
We use rail shipping (which creates fewer CO2 emissions than other methods) and reduce fuel consumed during transport.
We increase our container loading rate for better efficiency per shipment.
We optimized land transport with larger containers and used 20- and 40-foot containers for 50% LTL shipping in 2020.
We have saved approximately 311 tons of carbon emissions so far
Shipping of notebook computers by rail from Chongqing to Europe increased by 128%
Our packaging uses minimal and environmental-friendly materials with extended usability.
We decreased the size and weight of our product boxes, the scale of packaging, and the use of plastic bags.
We use only recyclable packaging materials, including recycled EPE and molded-pulp packaging.
Our packaging design emphasizes recyclability and prioritizes the use of easily recyclable materials.
All printing on packaging and documents uses environmentally friendly water-based or soy inks.
Cardboard boxes are made from 90% recycled paper
Molded pulps are made from 100% recycled kraft paper
Posters are made from FSC certified paper
Printed matters are made from 40% recycled paper
Non-woven fabrics are made from 100% recycled PET
Channel and recycling solutions give our products and materials a new purpose at the end of their lives.
We think in terms of a circular economy. Our products last longer and are more easily recycled.
Reuse Resources in Manufacturing
To reduce pollution from heavy metals in batteries and motherboards, we select reliable recyclers and reuse materials.
