We understand that transportation is a big, environmental challenge. We aim to ship as many quantities as possible by sea, as the environmental impact is a lot smaller than by air. Shipping by air results in 16-17 times more CO2 than shipping by sea. The reason why we cannot fully avoid shipping by air is late production, unexpected delays and the simple fact that we work with leather, which is a natural material that does not always respond to the treatment in the desired way, which may prolong the process.
We constantly aim to keep the quantities shipped by air as low as possible.
In 2018, we shipped approximately 71% by sea and 29% by air.
In 2019, we shipped approximately 63% by sea and 37% by air.
In 2020, we are going to ship approximately 81% by sea and 19% by air.
In 2021, we aim to ship approximately 85% by sea and 15% by air. Per 1st of May we have shipped 97% by sea and 3% by air. We aim to maintain the current distribution, but we are aware that the Covid-19 situation in India may pose challenges.
