What did we learn?
1. a large part of our end products come to us logistically optimised via the major " long-haul roads": from China or the USA. We are one of the few importers who import finished products from African countries. It is done and it is possible, but it also costs a lot more.
But that doesn't stop us, it spurs us on! - #unique
2. steering the logistics chain of the individual products from the respective countries out of Germany was a big mistake. We are not on site and do not know the specific local structures. Therefore, we should trust our local partners and just let them do it. Sounds banal, but it actually is true.
We still see a lot of room for enlightenment! - #Empowerment
3. we want to act sustainably, but with our small quantities we are still dependent on air freight or so-called consolidated containers, which are often not full in times of Corona.
From there: "Join us in filling the container!" - #sustainable
