Slow logistics, inventive and responsibly managed on a human scale
Want a ride on my pallet?!
Skipper, the inventor of slow logistics
Slow logistics is like an amazing playground, or a breath of fresh air, that invites you to imagine, rethink, innovate and make it happen. We support engaged brands that spend all of their energy creating responsible products. Our role is to enable them to extend their engagement by offering them logistics that is more minimalist (less but better), more creative and more personal. It is a source of continuous improvement, where we are all learning the ropes (apprentice-ships!).
Slow logistics is logistics… of a different kind! Slow logistics means rethinking the entire logistics chain, from a more responsible perspective, with the whole system centered around people and the environment. Slow logistics is an invitation to stop thinking about logistics from a mostly short-term view and adopt a method of action and relationships stretched out over a longer period of time. For a service with the stamp of slow logistics, you need:
An eco-sourced packaging supply chain
Recyclable or even compostable consumables, returnable packaging solutions, etc.
Fewer, bigger and slower logistics flows
Grouping of orders for a single client or multiple clients
Alternative, low-carbon transportation
Last-mile delivery by cargo bike, transportation pooling solutions, deliveries to neighbors, etc.
Where everyone can blossom and grow at a great place to work
In concrete terms
Slow double-decker semis
Skipper x L’Occitane
L’Occitane x Skipper slow logistics trucks are double-deckers, allowing them to carry 60 pallets, instead of the 35 handled by a standard semi-trailer. The result is less time on the road… and less CO2 produced!
Alternative deliveries… to your neighbor!
Skipper x Welco
At a time when e-commerce is exploding, Welco is reinventing package deliveries by offering deliveries… to your neighbor! It’s a great way to create a bond with a neighbor and avoid needless travel time when you’re not home. The history between Welco and Skipper dates back to 2018, when we were “incubating” the up-and-coming startup at our campus. A promising idea that has come a long way!
Returnable e-store packaging
Skipper x Opopop
The future of packaging is undoubtedly the system of returnable containers! Opopop and Hipli were the first brands to offer returnable packaging that can be reused 100 times for e-commerce (perfect for engaged textile, cosmetic and French lifestyle brands). When combined with innovative packing materials, you’re sure to get wrapped up in this new kind of package!
