On our way towards a paperless office

Paperless office
As in many industries sustainability plays an important role in the transportation industry. At Winterswijk Logistics we are constantly working on improving the sustainability of our business. Reducing the use of paper is a good example. Recently, we implemented a new order system which reduces the need to print documents. A big step towards a paperless company.

Sustainable fleet
All our cars and vans have been replaced by environmentally friendly hybrid cars. This gives us a significant saving on fuel, moreover we use less fossil fuels.
