Innovation

Innovation is at the heart of our services

Objective : to invent, design and implement the best processes, organisational methods and operational tools in all of our countries thereby giving our company and its customers the competitive edge. For FM Logistic, innovating means increasing operational productivity and site performance, reducing supply chain costs, becoming more flexible and providing a better quality service.

FM Logistic also considers innovation to include staff well-being and sustainable development. Our HQE sites and cutting edge hydrogen trucks highlight this, as do our   ergonomic solutions that improve working conditions.

FM Logistic has an innovation committee made up of experts from each business activity within the Group. The committee identifies necessary research areas and launches the main projects. Each country has a local Innovation representative who is in charge of implementing and monitoring the new initiative.
