As part of this new partnership, McDonald’s last-mile delivery provider, GrabExpress will also be onboarded onto their platform.

We’re super excited about adding GrabExpress to our marketplace given their reach and salience. This will enable other LogiNext clients to also access GrabExpress last-mile delivery services. We’re scaling up the marketplace aggressively so that more and more brands can take advantage of it,” says Dhaval Thanki, VP of APAC & MEA at LogiNext.

Strategic investments made prior to 2020 have allowed us to set a strong foundation for delivery like having a clear technology roadmap, that enables us to onboard systems to stay ahead of the curve. LogiNext’s integration with GrabExpress is aligned with McDonald’s mission of a frictionless customer experience across all channels, allowing us to serve making delicious feel-good moments anytime, anywhere easy for everyone. Through this technology platform, we’ll be able to deliver signature McDonald’s meals faster and more efficiently,” says Oliver Rabatan, AVP of Marketing and Channels Lead at McDonald’s Philippines.

With GrabExpress joining LogiNext’s 1-click Carrier Integration Marketplace, new and existing LogiNext clients can now easily integrate their delivery operations with GrabExpress’s last mile service through pre-built APIs. Overall, this partnership will enable McDonald’s to march ahead as a progressive tech-enabled brand and push the entire F&B industry towards increased efficiency so they can keep delivering a great end customer experience along with meeting business objectives.

Rhenus Group, a leading global logistics service provider, announces positive progress in the efforts to achieve LCL carbon neutrality through a pilot project to ensure that the reduction of emissions complies with international standards. Rhenus is working with ClimatePartner, an independent consultancy, to verify the calculation methodology and offset the amount of CO2 through verified and audited carbon offset projects.

The ClimatePartner label, which confirms the carbon neutrality of the products under the Rhenus name, will be available to companies who engage Rhenus to export LCL shipments from the Central European Gateway in Hilden starting this year. Currently, the emissions from the operations during Q1 2022 have been calculated and offset, the rest of 2022 will follow. With the offset result from this pilot project, Rhenus has invested in a wind energy project which promotes less reliance on fossil fuels.

“Our LCL Gateway in Hilden is the biggest Rhenus consolidation hub worldwide and moving towards a sustainable direction is our focus. In parallel with minimising direct emissions, Rhenus is willing and ready to take the extra steps in developing services with a verified carbon-neutral label. This is only the start of our journey to decarbonising logistics services.” said Julian Broeer, Regional Head LCL Europe of Rhenus Air & Ocean.

“Contributing to sustainable logistics is a core objective of Rhenus and the green logistics efforts. We are encouraged by the promising progress thus far. Results and learnings of this pilot project will lay the foundation for our goal to achieve 100 percent carbon neutrality for all LCL shipments worldwide by 2030,” said Jan Harnisch, the newly appointed global Co-CEO of Rhenus Air & Ocean.

The pilot project is the first step in the Rhenus strategy to neutralise the carbon emissions of its LCL product by 2030, which was announced in late 2021. Future plans for Rhenus include opening more carbon-neutral trade lanes, expanding its sustainability product offerings and actively researching effective ways to efficiently reduce emissions.
