The first FLUDIS logistics boat launched
The first low carbon warehouse-boat was launched on Saturday 21st September in the presence of her godfather, Francis JOYON. She represents the future of last mile delivery. This first 100% electric boat, which is due to start working from today for three clients (LYRECO, IKEA, PAPREC) will sail up and down the Seine to transport goods to various ports in the heart of Paris without generating any carbon emissions. The goods will then be delivered by electric bicycles. FLUDIS has calculated that each warehouse barge will be capable of dealing with 750,000 parcels per year, which would mean cutting the distance which would normally be covered by traditional vehicles by almost 200,000 miles each year.
The IDEC GROUP committed to sustainable development
The IDEC GROUP believes in the new urban logistics project developed by FLUDIS. The sustainable, low-carbon approach, which fits in with urban transport rules, matches the values supported by the IDEC GROUP when working with its clients. Proposing innovative, pragmatic and eco-friendly solutions, both companies naturally came together around these shared values.

The IDEC GROUP, running major projects
