Bluedistrib’, Winner of the “Region Capital Price” 2016 in the Urban Logistics Category

October 11th, 2016

Enabling all to benefit from a more respectful environment service, Bluedistrib’ is much more than just a sustainable urban logistics service… it's a new city trend!

It is within the Bolloré Group, which operated the alchemy of diversification that is dear to us: The DNA and the Group expertise around transportation and logistics as well as those serving the energy transition through the BlueSolutions Division merged giving rise to the Bluedistrib’ project. Our teams have imagined, designed, developed, and implemented a solution, service and logistics patterns induced to distribute parcels on their final kilometer to a network of shared parcel lockers available 24/7 and seven days a week.

This service allows reducing pollution in the city thanks to its deliveries fully insured in electric vehicles. It is also more serenity for the citizens due to delivery at night or in off-shifting, thus reducing traffic and congestion, while offering free delivery whenever and wherever I want!

Finally, the richness of our culture that is found in the know-how of shopkeeper and artisans of our neighborhoods is also preserved by allowing them, through a shared approach to take advantage of this innovative distribution solution: my merchants are happy and jobs are maintained and developed in my city!

The jury of the Region Capital Price 2016 made us the honor to reward this innovative initiative by awarding us in the “Urban Logistics" category at an event that took place on October 4th, at the French National Assembly, in the presence of numerous personalities and under the guidance of Mr. François Dumont, managing editor of city Rail & transport magazine.

It is in the presence of Mr. Thierry Ehrenbogen, Director General of Bolloré Logistics, that Ms. Sandrine Ressayre, in charge of this new specially created subsidiary, was awarded the trophy from the hands of Mr. Vincent Lalu, CEO of VLA Media Group. "We are honored by this recognition for the efforts and the early success achieved reflecting in this price. We remain engaged, enthusiastic and confident to meet the many challenges that are still ahead of us in order, with you all, to build together a new mode of city!” said Sandrine Ressayre following the discussions which were held during the awards.
