Upstream and downstream logistics

Attaining maximum efficiency and minimal environmental impact while managing the movement of materials, parts and finished vehicles through a complex global supply chain  is a commitment that Fiat Group Logistics embraced years ago.

By optimizing freight flows and maximizing efficiencies, our efforts are centered on reducing environmental impacts by cutting logistics-related emissions and minimizing the use of non-reusable packaging. This is specifically stated in our Green Logistics Principles, consistent with the Fiat Group Environmental Guidelines on which they are based, which provide guidance on reducing environmental impacts, focusing on four main areas:

  • increase in low-emission transport
  • use of intermodal solutions
  • optimization of transport capacity
  • reduced use of packaging and protective materials.
