Social responsibility and sustainable management
Past winners such as UPS in 2016 were distinguished for their commitment to cost efficiency in combination with environmental compatibility and social responsibility. UPS won over the jury with a logistics concept that reduces pollution when making deliveries across cities. Rainer Kiehl, UPS City Logistics Manager, said: “The Hanse Globe confirmed to us that UPS City Logistics project is a sustainable and viable concept for the future. We will roll out pollution free deliveries per cargo bikes, on pedelecs and hand trucks beyond Germany and Europe.”
