1) ONE-STOP SHOP
Adopting a one-stop-shop business concept reflect our tendency to control and internally manage all product movements & services. This gives us the ability to plan and opt for the best environmental solutions rather than give the power to external subjects.
2) CENTRALIZED LOGISTICS
Thanks to the centralized logistics of our facilities in Italy and Dubai we are proximate to our core markets, having so the opportunity to stock products and reduce the emissions related to multiple yearly material movements. These locations allow us to both reach in a faster and better way our clients and make our business impact on the environment as low as possible.
3) SHIPPING STRATEGY
Keeping the control on the logistic chain means selecting the less polluting transportation option to reach our customers all over the world. In valveIT, shipment by sea is the most adopted and preferred way. Arranging private containers on international routes guarantee a CO2 emissions restraint compared to the same coverage by air freight transportation.
