In a few months’ time, Skipper will be opening the gates to a new platform called Les Robins. Although these “robins” will not be in the forest, they will be surrounded by forested areas, to preserve biodiversity 🌳 The platform will have a BREEAM Very Good rating, guaranteeing its energy-efficient construction and consumption levels. By supplementing our existing seven logistics platforms in Drôme-Ardèche, Les Robins will deepen our regional roots there. With its premium services and its temperature control (59-77°F), it will be positioned to accommodate logistics for outstanding French cosmetics, wine, fine foods and cutting-edge technologies.

A platform with a BREEAM Very Good rating…

Innovation has always been a driving force here at Skipper. We look to the future to envision new forms of smart logistics on a human scale. We have always been a player in our region, backing projects that will drive the local ecosystem. By promoting slow logistics, investing in more virtuous platforms and more responsible energy consumption models has always been near and dear to our ❤. So, it was only natural for us to conceive of Les Robins as a means of supporting our growth and offering a sophisticated, responsible logistics solution for our engaged clients and their high standards.

In addition, our transportation outsourcing solutions (low-carbon and urban logistics, plus express, chartered and overseas shipping) will allow us to handle the logistics and transiting of cosmetics and perfumes to drug stores and major chains, bottles of wine to networks of wine merchants, fine foods to local stores, and the list goes on.

This premium platform will also feature dedicated e-store personalization workshops, where our order pickers will take care of e-commerce packages, with gift boxes and tissue paper but also green packaging and returnable boxes to enhance the ethical side of our slow logistics.

Over and above the platform’s premium services, Les Robins will be a pleasant work environment, embodying our ongoing goal of fostering our Skippers’ sense of fulfillment, both individually and collectively. In keeping with the rest of the group, which has been ranked one of the Top 30 Best Workplaces in France, Les Robins will confirm that Skipper is, indeed, a Great Place to Work 🤩 !
